Welcome to Day 14 of the 31 Days to Build a Better Saltwater Aquarium Challenge. You made it a full 2 weeks. Congratulations. Because it is Day 14, that means it has been 7 days since your last partial water change.
Today’s task is to complete another partial water change.
But let’s spice it up a little.
If your tank is relatively new (less than a year old), do a 10% water change today. If your tank is more than a year old, and your last water change was a week ago or less, do a 10% water change today.
If your tank is more than a year old and your last water change was more than a week ago, we’re going to jump-start things by increasing the water change to a 20% water change today.
If you have a 40 gallon tank, that means 2 bucket(s) of water (~2 x 4 gallons). That’s not just a partial water change, that’s a 2X’s partial water change. Feeling challenged?
Looking forward to kicking off the third week in the 31 Days to Build a Better Saltwater Aquarium Challenge tomorrow.
