Buffy,... Once you've finally completed you cycling process and you look at your tank and you take in that deep breath and exhale and go "whew",.. Well, here we go.....then the normal rule of thumb is to do a big water change for your first post cycle event,..usually around 50% ,... Then depending on what your tanks readings are,..then 10-20 % weekly or biweekly,...I normally will do about a 20 gal pwc
+ - every Monday morning ( day off), on my 75 gal
tank and do my normal tank maintenance then too.
I will usually always have a 30 gal
rubbermaid filled with new sw
ready to go a week ahead of time,..a thermometer and a powerhead will take care of the rubbermaid's mixing etc.....I also make up a 8 gal
water canister with my RODI
water for my top offs,....
Your tank is looking nice..btw.....
