Annual Maintenance Plans – Do You Have One?

 Reef keeping is a very gratifying hobby but it does take a lot of work to successfully maintain a thriving reef tank. Weekly and monthly maintenance chores such as water changes, re-calibrating pH probes, testing parameters, swapping out carbon or kalkwasser all help to keep a captive reef firing on all cylinders. In addition to these “light” chores, it is critical to have a plan in place for some major maintenance tasks. Below is my list. At the very least, I recommend doing these on an annual basis. Replace 1/4″ flexible tubing from kalkwasser reactor to sump. This is for my top-off water and I do this to prevent clogs. Replace all 1/4″ tubing connected to calcium MORE
