125 Gallon Water Change

If I have a 125 gallon saltwater tank how many gallons of water should I be swapping out when doing a water change? Ive been doing like 10 gallons every 2 weeks.All my parameters are all good.

What kind of and how many fish do you have? It depends on the bioload...for example a 125 with 2 triggers and an eel is gonna have a higher load than a 125 with 2 tangs an a clown.

Also what kind of filter are you running?? Skimmer??

Ok...aside from the Volitan, everything else is pretty easy on the bioload. 10-12 gal should be ok.

This calculator is a useful tool to help gauge your weekly water change schedule. Try using it for help with maintenance.

If your parameters are in check, it sounds like all is well...
