With all the Holiday’s and traveling, I have barely had time to sit down and write a blog post, let alone keep up on aquarium maintenance. I’m not sure how I would do it if I was keeping an aquarium by myself. Luckily, I have my husband around to help out (and pretty much do) all of that.
Speaking of maintenance, water changes are probably the most time consuming for us, but I think only because the way we do it is not very efficient. I plan to resolve this issue this year, by keeping track of how long it takes for us to perform a water change each time, and work on ways to become more efficient. I think that for 2 people performing a water change for a 75 gallon aquarium, it should take no more than 30 minutes. That is my goal. If we perform better than that I would be ecstatic, and certainly anything is better than the hour it takes us now.
I will keep you posted on how it goes, and on ways we have found to save time. If anyone has suggestions I would be more than happy to hear them!
We hope everyone has a wonderful 2013!
