My daily routine? Stare at tank.
Every second day: feed and top off.
Third day: PWC and mag float.

Daily: View tank; inspect tank occupants and system components.

Additional routines:

Every 3rd Day: Feed fish; replenish Top off ATO reservoir; check/replenish carbonates/alkalinity; empty skimmate cup.

Weekly: Clean glass, check water parameters, replenish calcium if required.

Um that's not good fish should be fed at LEAST once a day I thought feeding fish every 2 days is bad let alone 3 that's nuts.. What fish do you have maybe there's something I don't know but I wouldn't imagine there's a fish out there that should eat 2 times a week I feed my little guys 3-4 times a day and before u ask I have no problems with water quality

A couple of azure damsels and a royal gramma. They've been on this feeding schedule for over 5 years.
