I am considering setting up a 120G tank.   I currently have a 30 gallon, and rarely do water changes.    If I upgrade I will be even less likely to do them.

How many of you do regular water changes on a larger tank?

If you don't do them, what do you do instead?

In your opinion can you have a beautiful tank without water changes?   Is it something that can be done long term or are you really just setting yourself up for failure?



I always do regular water changes of (usually) 10% - 20% monthly. Yes, they are a pain. BUT you can make it easier:
 - Figure out the amount you want to change out (for a 120G I would suggest 20G once a month) and get a container (water barrel, old aquarium, whatever) of that size. To make it really easier, put the container on wheels so you can just wheel it over to your display tank... if you use an RO system, run a line with a valve on it next to your ATO line so you can 'remotely' fill your water change container easily.
 - Dedicate a small circ pump / prop pump (like a Jebao or Koralia), a cheap water pump (like a Mag pump), a siphon hose, and a heater just for the water change container. Doesn't have to be expensive; you can get everything you need used here on the Buy / Sell Forum or on KSL.
 - Fill the container, add salt, start the pump / heater a few days ahead of the day you change the water. This way everything is warm and ready for when you need it.
 - If you follow the above, the actual water change of 20 G will take literally less than 15 minutes to (A) turn off your return pump (B) siphon out 20 G of old water - another tip, get *2* water containers of the same size and use the 2nd one to drain the exact correct amount of water that you will be replacing - (C)  pump in the new water (D) unplug the water change container pump / heater / etc (E) restart your display return pump (F) and roll all the water change equipment away to the closet / garage until next month
 - the key IMO is to make the water change process quick and easy so that you WILL do it every month... if it is a half - day hassle, then yeah, I wouldn't bother either...
As far as SHOULD you change out water..?
IMO ABSOLUTELY
Yes, I know there are people who have 'decent' tanks that never (or almost never) do water changes.
 BUT, the ones out there with truly awesome larger tanks, keeping beautifully colored, well grown out SPS corals, super healthy fish, etc. - the Brad Syphus', Jeff Martin's, Bryan Bench's, ...
They ALL do regular water changes. ALL of them.

I've always done water changes. On my 120G I did 10G a week, and on my 60G I do 5G a week. Whenever I see problems I up that. At times I miss a week, but I generally stick to a weekly schedule. I'm a constant observer of my tank (literally hours every day), and I notice healthier looking corals after every change. I'll never stop! :)

I've had some success without often water changes. Sometimes going a year or two without a change and things just grow and look happy. But without regular testing and additives, it seems like things go downhill slowly. I'm a terrible example of how a tank should be cared for and so I'm trying to sell my system.

Ok the rock is a little less alive now, after sitting overnight out of water. The sand should be fine if someone is interested.

150 gallon w/40 sump. 5 gallon water change, every 4-6weeks.

Tank has started to do alot better once I cut back on water changes.

But then again, I have a oversized skimmer, bio-denitrater, and refugium.
The last Triton test I had low phosphates. So it all seems to be working well

$575- 75 Gal Mixed Reef (drilled with overflow & blacked out back)
Custom antiqued stand and canopy
Reef lighting (T5HO retro canopy)
Skimmer
Dual stage media reactor (running GFO & Carbon)
Wave makers (2 koralia on a hydor wave controller)
Kalkwasser dosed ATO
Backup power supply in case of power outage
Return pump
Heater
Refugium lighting
Sump with refugium packed with baby stars, spaghetti worms, amphipods, copepods, and other beneficial microfauna and macro algae
**2 year old tank (live rock came out of older well established tank)

As far as livestock goes;
Over flow has a pretty good sized orange/red monti cap on it. There some pretty good sized zoa colonies, mushroom colonies, mushroom colonies, green star colonies, Xenia colonies, leathers, hammer, frogspawn, anthelia, ricordea, and a pretty big Hollywood stunner piece.

Random clean up crew, snails, crabs, fighting conch...

Not many fish left. I have 3” vlamingi tang a domino damsel and a two strip damsel

I’d rather not part this out. I’ve drained the tank and everything is in holding tanks so this will be the easiest tank move ever. I have new live sand if you want it I tossed the old stuff out when I drained the tank.

phosphates are slowing going down after cleaning out the filters.  It is down to 0.33 now.   I guess I need to clean them more often.

I use an apex dos for the water changes. I change about 2gal per day which equates to 60 gal per month. I have a 180 gallon tank. I do have a fish room behind my tank which has a 60 gallon storage container and a drain so that makes it even easier. I refill the mixing tank about once per month. The dos spreads out the water changes so I think it runs once per hour. throughout the day.

This is great, thanks. I guess I wasn't sure if Fritz (for example) said "here's ten bucks" or if they said "here's a thousand to cover airfare and hotel."
Also, if Driftwood is sponsoring Callahan, can they get him to autograph the inside of a cabinet door (Or something)?

Cool sponsors, thanks for the update.
