    Default How often should I do PWC's in my skimmerless nano

    I was just curious how often I should do PWC's...my NO3 has been undetectable for a while...however, I have no idea what the dissolved organics are. What is a good rule of thumb for PWC's in a non-protein skimmer 24 gallon tank. I keep feeding to a minimum.

    PWC = Partial Water Change, I believe.

    In that case, I would personally do 20-30% weekly

    Since you are without a skimmer I would also say weekly 20%-30%.

    What's in your tank?

    You may want to experiment with the water change interval and percentage changed out that works best for your set up.

    20-30% a week may work, or 20% a month may work, it depends (bioload, feeding regiment, clean up crew, presence of soft corals, etc).

    The basic guide would be 10% weekly. Every tank is different. It ends up being trial and error to figure out what works best for each tank, but I would go with 10% weekly for now.
