Atleast 1-2 hours a night. Sometimes More!

My routine is this....

Daily
  • Top off the tanks evaporation with Reverse Osmosis De-ionized water
  • Clean glass
  • Check Temperature
  • Feed Fish and Corals
  • Clean skimmer collection cup
Weekly
  • Test water for pH, Calcium, Alkalinity, Nitrate, and Salinty
  • Change 25% of the water
Monthly
  • Scrap Coralline off glass
  • Clean all pumps of detritus and calcium precipitation
  • Clean Salt Creep
Yearly
  • Change Bulbs in lights
  • Re-do all the wiring for the tank, inspect for corrosion
Reef Tanks are a great hobby to get into, I enjoy it very much!
