Question Does anyone else find themselves....

Does anyone else find themselves cleaning tanks everyday?I clean at least one tank a day accept on the weekends when I spend most of my time at the barn.but yeah does anyone clean tanks that much I would do them all in one day but I get burned out I would rather do a quick change in the morning then dedicate a whole day to it.I only have 5 I can't imagine having 10!Like this morning I do a water change for Diego and thats it for today but yesterday I did two they sure do keep me busy.So how do you guys schedule your tank cleanings?

I do all mine on Friday nights when no one is usually home so I don't have to listen to my nagging grandma and mom telling me to "clean your mess!" and "take care of your stuff!" Blah blah blah.

I do big tanks Saturday and little tanks Sunday. I have 6 tanks, 3 big, 3 small.
"Big" in my mind is 10 gallons or larger. All of mine are cycled and planted, so it's not too difficult. The worst part is carrying water all over the house since I'm a weak, scrawny little girl and half the tanks are upstairs and I usually take my old fishwater outside to water the plants since the fish poo water is actually pretty decent fertilizer.

i clean roughly 2-3 tanks a week, whether it be a 2g a 5g or a 10g... somehow i find myself looking at the tanks thinking "I'm better than this, and their better than this, they deserve an immaculate home"

I only have three tanks (1-1 gal, 2- 3.65 gal), but I usually only change my water once a wekk unless my test kits show that my water parameters are changing (ammonia and nitrites going up). Two of my tanks are planted currently The one gallon is a temp home until the other tank cycles. I usually get the water ready the night before and declorinate it so that its ready first thing in the morning then I syphon out the water out into a premeasured container, then pour the new water in. Its a hassel, but I think that the fish really appreciate the clean water.

I'm always doing something or another with each fish every day, but Monday morning is tank cleaning day. I have 1 10 gallon and 5 gallon that I vacuum, and 2 2.5's that get 100 % changes with a 50% change towards the end the week. They're bare bottom tanks and take 5 minutes to clean though. All of my larger tanks are planted.
I'm working on getting my second 10 gallon set up to eliminate the two tiny tanks. :)
