Re: To change or not to change
Most of the Marine keepers who don't change water(there are many) control their nitrates some other way?
You could vodka or vinnegar dose(any other form of carbon dosing).
You could do Bio plastics ,it really couldn't get much easier just equipment investment.These can almost eliminate your nitrates!
For fresh I like under 40,for marine the difference is corals or FO.Niether should ever be allowed higher then fresh(40) IMO.
My FW tanks take way more maintenance then my marines(10X plus).
