Been wondering for a while now, how often do people really change the water on their fish tanks.

We do change ours weekly however I work from home and would rather be stuffin around with the tanks than on the computer....what do you do?

Just a bit of fun...

I have been doing mine fortnightly for the last 3 months, no difference in the nitrate levels, and my tropheus are still spawning,

But maybe being vegies its makes it easier on the filter.

Plus on my 8 footer i run a fluid bed filter full of purigen.

I change the water in my 10 tanks weekly, and take out about 1/4 to 1/3 of the water, depends on the colour of the water in the tanks and if i want my fish to breed. the best days to change water in bundaberg is wednesday or thursday.just my bit of info to add. cheers from sultana 8) .

weekly to monthly depends on mood :lol:

and i usually change 2 buckets (15L each) on the smallset up in my garage, i.e 2 6ft and 2 2ftx2fton sump and sponge filter.

monthly on my 6ft display with ard 25%.

forthnightly on my 3ft breeding/display (bn tank) either 1 or 2 buckets.

Cheers

In my six foot tank i change 30% weekly, foloowed by my two foot 25% every fortnight coz of restrictions here in queensland.

Otherwise id do changes every week on both.
