  1. I have 8 tanks 150, 100, 55, 40, 36, 30, and 2 10 gallon, when I do water changes I use a 5 gallon bucket and treat 5 gallons at a time cause I feel safe doing it that way. I only do water changes about every 3 to 4 weeks and if I can I go longer... With that said you can treat the whole tank and go straight from water hose to tank but you have to treat for 55 gallons instead of 5 I think, could be wrong about that.
  2. Thanks for the advice folks. I wish I had one of them there organics barns close to me🤨 like @Streetwise has. That would be super nice.... I will update my tank set up once I get started if I can, Working so many dang hours at work cause nobody wants to work cutts down on a lot of my time, matter in fact I'm at work now, most of post are done when I'm at work.
