Yea maintenance for my planted tank is a 80% pwc every week, scrubbing the algae from the walls, putting in root tabs, dosing flourish, cutting back my aponogeton crispus every now and then, redoing my DIY co2 bottles every 2 weeks, and feeding every day but Saturday.
Considerably more lol x.x

Not mine but you get mt point lol

But seriously they are both beautiful and take much time and dedication as I have both a 75 high tech planted and a 75 reef I love them both but if someone comes for a visit I would have to show them the reef first it's my pride so my vote is a little more towards the reef
