I have a 10 frame hive, but removed 1, so there are 9 frames now. The reason why I did this is because I went from TBH to longstroth hive and TBH combs are a little bit thicker. When I put 10 frames, there was no room between the combs. I know it's not a big deal, but I'm still interested in your opinions. I'd rather be safe then sorry. Also, if you could let me know how much space should be between the frames.
