Just out of curiosity....

Like everyone else, I'm dreaming of a large tank in the future. I am doing about 5 gal PWC's weekly on my 30. Realistically speaking, owners of 150 or larger what are your PWC's like? How much and how often? If I have to do 15+ gallons every week I would go broke with my current salt mix (TM).

I normally do between 20-30 gallons weekly on my 135

Wow. That's a [moderator edit] of a maintenance schedule. . So, I'm assuming you are using a more cost effective salt?

I use instant ocean reef crystals 200g for about $50.

I change out 20-30g from my 125g, 10-20g on my 55g and 6g on both my 29g biocube and 20g rimless.

I have a mix of many different saltwater fish amongst my tanks, but I love my Tangs most of all.
