No water changes??

This thing claims to allow you not to change the water for up to a year. The 3 reviews claim it works too. I dont believe it. This cant be good at all... never have I heard of something like this.

Maybe for a fish only system. I think it's a gimmick too

I've not presently changed any water in 13 weeks a full on reef with fish , SPS , LPS and softies.

I currently dose

Tropic marin A B C balling
Acro power
Reef flower F + B colour
Tropic marin K+ (trace elements)
Tropic marin A - (trace elements)

All dosed via a 7 channel dosing system so fully automated and all trickled over a 24 hour period daily to help with stability that enables me to replace all the main elements as well as trace elements.

Yes you can get away with doing no water changes but will cost you a fair bit in equipment and a good understanding of water chemistry is needed to do it properly in my opinion.

I also run pellet reactor , ozone , UV , Large deltec skimmer , large cheato algae bed which all helps keeps things low

When I wet skim, I have to add salt to top offs. Other than that, I dose what the tank needs, IE- ALK, CAL, MAG when it calls for it.

And it won't cost you anything extra to not do water changes, via just vodka or vinegar dosing, just need a good skimmer. Nothing else is out of the ordinary to do it.

I vodka dose on one reef and use bio pellets on other!
I change too much water on my fresh water tanks to mess with my marine tanks.
No water changes for my marine in over a year
I test for and dose the need traces.
