    What are you trying to schedule?

    Agreed. We need more information to try and help.

    I think he is asking for a tank maintenance schedule. When to add and how often fertilizers, water changes, fish feeding are needed. that's my understanding anyways.

    I can only help with actual tank care. I do my water changes on Sundays. I test my water parameters, and do a 50% water change every Sunday morning.

    For feeding I feed flakes in the AM, and either brine shrimp or blood worms in the PM. On Friday the fish are fasted for 24 hours. Then on Saturday they get a blanched de-shelled pea in the AM, and flakes in the PM.

    I personally want to find out what the op is trying to schedule. You may be 100% correct, but I just want to make sure.

    Bump trying to schedule ferts and cleanings.

    I think 45 % water change on my 55 gallon would be fine every 2 weeks with gravel vacs ?
