Just a quick survey...I'm curious about what everyone does....

How big is your tank?

How often do you do PWCs?

How much water do you change?

Thanks


Mine:
72G (120 total system volume)

Every other week.

25gallons

I have a 72g Bow with alot of Fish. I won't list them as you guys will get mad at me. :p

Weekly. Sometimes earlier depending on how the fish acts.

Now back to 20 Gallon


BTW, can anyone link me to good DYI site of how to build and what to know about sumps.

Petco has $1 per gallon sale and I saw this 45G that I want to build a sump/refuge. 36" x 13" x 24"

PM me so the the thread wont go off topic.

Thanks.

20g wc 5g every week (20g / month) - no skimmer or filter in this tank so wc's are a MUST..

Does professional work count or just home aquaria?

edit: Bah, who cares. 25%+ bi-weekly regardless of size at work; otherwise, monthly or every couple of months at home.
