New question!! Yay!
If I get a 55 gallon tank, how much water will I need to remove for the weekly water change once it is cycled? Or should I do bi-weekly instead of weekly and if so how much water should be removed?
How many days before the water change should I mix the saltwater? How long can you store it in a bucket?
Also, for topping off in the case of evaporation, how many days ahead of time should I get to RO
freshwater water ready and how long can I store that in a bucket?
How do you guys pour the water back into your tanks? I image it would be hard to lift a 5gallon bucket up to the aquarium and not spill it everywhere. I'm thinking set the bucket on an elevated surface and use some hosing and let gravity take over like it does when using a siphon... But I want to hear how you guys do it.
