I do water changes every 3 days. Filter socks when they are over filling, skimmer every week, glass as needed. Just me.

A pwc every 3 days?? Is that a typo? I dont think ive ever seen someone do water changes so frequently. (not saying its bad or wrong, just never seen it) im going to lower the skimmer down to every week. I get about 5-6 days out of the socks before they start getting backed up, so i want to stay ahead of that. Glass is same situation. I dont want any algae/coralline on anything but my rocks. I know alot of salties let their overflows and equipment take on the algae/ natural look but i cant stand it personally. Of course over the next 2 months or so im going to move dates in or out as needed. Thank you for sharing your schedule. Itll help me to reference mine

It's gonna suck up your whole tank. Mine was big for the 180g
