You turn on and off your lighting manually? I would invest in a few timers.
Dmann. Hard to tell from your picture, but I would probably not vacuum that sand bed. Just keep good flow in the tank so that detritus (uneaten fish food and poop) doesn't settle on it.

I do a 12 gallon water change and rinse out the filters once a week. Top off water every day to every other day. Empty protein skimmer cup as needed.

Dmann: I don't want to take away for your thread, but does everyone buy premixed water or mix themselves?

I mix my own water, it would cost too much to buy it premixed, plus I wouldn't want to carry that water more than once. I set up the ro unit in my garage so I just mix as needed. I do usually keep about 10 gallons ready to go at all times.

Yeah I keep my mixed in a 35 gallon trash bin. I keep 2 power heads and salinity right at 1.025. Is it ok to always have water in bin? Or should I clean it out every other week?

I mix my own, I keep about 20 gal of ro water in a bin with a power head. When I'm going to do pwc I will mix the water with salt in a separate container. 1.025 salinity
