How often do you do your water changes, Aaron?

Weekly huh? I guess I will just have to figure out what is best for me. I had thought that once a month would be enough, but now I am re-thinking that approach. I will just see how it goes I guess...

I do weekly 10% SW changes. I figure it only takes 1/2 hour to mix the water and 1/2 hour to do the change itself. So while the TV is on rather than sit on my butt with my feet up, why not do a waterchange. This gives me an opportunity to give the tank & inhabitants a once over, blow sand off stuff, a good acrylic scarpe, do a head count, etc. It can't hurt to be overcautious with the money we spend on our 'hobby'.

I do weekly 20% but I have NO skimmer, and just run carbon. I am saving for a CPR bakpak 2 and then I will bump them back to either 2 or 3 weeks.
