Looking for information on what everyone does for water changes. Trying to size up support systems.

I realize the bioload of each system is a bit different and therefore will effect water changes but........

What is your water change schedule?
weekly
bi weekly
monthly
other?

What is the typical volume of your water change?
10%
15%
20%
other?

Is the percentage from the display only or total system?


What is you bioload like?
light
medium
heavy

Anything I'm missing?


Thanks,

Kevin

5-10 percent monthly if I feel up to it.
My gout has really been bothering me??

about 60/40 display vs sump

Load- mild to decent

Why would you change your water if everything is in order?


Edit. I do not have the gout it just sounded like a fun word to use. I am pleased with my selection of fascinating obscure diseases-though!

unless dosing trace elements, things like mag will become depleted


I do not skim so most elements/vitamins that are good for a tank are not removed. I do Mg when I get done with the 2 part gallon
