Question Tank Cleaning Frequency

Hello! I clean my tank out once every week. This may seem like a dumb question but, does it matter if I vary the days? Will varying the days upset my cycle? Thank you!

Nope. Some weeks I'm a day or two early & other weeks I might be late. If the tank is fully cycled it shouldn't hurt anything at all.

Do you clean out the whole thing? :o If it's cycled, you're not supposed to do that. The BB is mostly in the substrate and filter. And if you washed the gravel, then.. You'll probably go through a mini-cycle sooner or later. :/

What do you mean vary the days? As long as you clean the tank once a week at the least, (Most do 50% changes) then the tank should be fine. (:

No I don't! Haha sorry I guess I worded it wrong. I do 50% water changes with a siphon. I was just curious if it mattered if I clean my tank on say a Wednesday, and then maybe a Saturday the next week. I hope that makes sense! Thank you for your input(:

Oh, nah. It won't matter, since there's hardly any BB in the water column. (;

I've done the Wed to Sat thing. Checked the water params and there was no difference between the strict one week schedule and a slipped date. Have fun.
