    5 gallons on my 27 gal each week, and 10-12 gal on my 75 every week as well.

    Once every two to three weeks. About ten gals, only 60 gals of water or so in my 75 because of displacement.

    I plan on doing a 10% water change weekly, "Two Gallons on Tuesday" so my brain injured DH can remember if I'm not home. If the water parameters are good though I'll do a 20% water change every two weeks. I didn't do any water changes until after the first algae cycle so I've only done one!

    Try it now. I hope the OP doesn't mind but I reopened the poll until the end of the month. If that's not ok, let me know and I'll close it back up :)
