I change about 25% of the water out every other day or every 3 days as time permits. I test the water for ammonia once or twice a week and all has been well.

No...I'm not a big fan of 100% water changes. To me it just seems like you're loosing to much that actually benefits the tanks. I just vacuum the gravel or sift the sand depending on which tank. Then net out any floating particles and do partial water changes.
