There is no equilibrium. and that is a common thought, that there
must be. One adds food, the fish produce waste and evaporation adds
to concentration. Partial changes only remove portions of it. The
same food, fish waste and evaporation continues to build.
There is only one way to get back to the start . . . Change it all.
