how long does it take you to clean your tanks?

So as you know i have 9 bettas all in seperate tanks. Tonight i cleaned everyones tanks out because i've had some sick fish =/ Smile has pop eye and Aphrodite has SDB. I didnt really time it but i think it took me about an hour and a half to two hours to boil all the rocks nad plants, rinse all the tanks out with hot water and then put them all back together again.

needless to say, im exhausted haha. So how long does it take you all to clean your tanks?

Every monday, well, It takes me around 3-4 hours. because I have two 10 gallons, which I hate to clean... And more containers. I have no idea why it takes me so long. I'm always saying to my self, Who EVER said fish were low matinence pets, obviously didn't have fish!

I agree, doggyhog. I really should clean all of mine on the same day instead of one every day. I got rid of my 4 gallon because it was a bear to clean.

I takes me 30-60 minutes depending on what I am doing to to the tank. If I do a partial water change it doesn't take that long though.

Hmm..usually takes me an hour lol. Depending on how many I change,partial or full. Takes me quite awhile to do the pandas tank. I dont do all of them the same day either. Maybe 2 one day,1 the next lol. And your are right Doggyhog,fish certainly are not low maintance!

It usually takes me about an hour per tank (I have 4 tanks, three 10 gallon and one 5 gallon).
I don't think I could handle cleaning them all in one day.

I guess it takes me about 10-15 minutes to clean one container.

It takes me about 5 mins to do a 50% water change in my filtered 5 gall + add dechlorinator and aquarium salt. I haven't had algae build up yet, but when I do it will prob take 10 mins to clean the plants and decorations on top of the water change

It takes me maybe 10 minutes to a 50% change and clean his decoration. About 20-30 minutes for a full change. Oh, it's a 2.25 G btw ;3
