10% weekly for me, twice a week occasionally if I feel really motivated
FWIW twice I decided to see what, if any, differences doing no PWC's or less frequent PWC's made(I have to dose Ca/Alk/Mag regardless b/c of coral consumption). I went about two months w/ no PWC's the first time, and just less frequent PWC's the second (but still only 10-15% for convenience sake). Both times I saw a difference for the better w/ at least 10% weekly PWC's, so that's what I do. Just my experience
