45 gallons

Monthly usually, though more frequently now because I'm trying to combat algae issues that arose from going a few months without a water change.

When I do change, I change around 10 - 15 gallons.

I do 20gals on my 95gal reef (plus a 15gal simp) every 2-3weeks depending on my motivation. Both my pico and nano get bi-weekly water changes of 50% and 25% respectively.

This is great information gang thanks. I started this to help out the newbies when the question is asked about PWCs. Maybe by reading through these posts people will get an idea of what has worked for all of us. They will be able to see the different sized systems and how much water is changed and how often. Thanks!!
