Wow! Very impressive! Beatiful fish and tanks .

How much maintenance time does it take to keep all those fish and tanks?

First off thank you and everyone else for your compliments.

With my handy-dandy python weekly 25% WC's take approximately 2-1/2 hours. Other maintenance (such as plant pruning) is on an as needed basis and generally very light.

As always your questions, comments, thoughts, and suggestions are welcomed and appreciated.

Yes, I do... I typically vacuum all my tanks. Then I set the temperature of the tap water for all my tanks that are at the "low" end. Next, I add treatment (dechlorinator/Chlorimine remover and heavy metal remover) to the lower temperature tanks and fill them. I then up the temperature and repeat the process for each tank that is warmer. I use a typical aquarium thermometer to set the tap temperature. If you or really worried about using hot water from the tap due to dissolved impurities you could get a tap filter (think Brita).

As always, may peace be with you.
