Large tank maintenance
I've been watching a lot of youtube videos about huge plywood tank installations and the wheels are turning in my head for a 10'L x 5'W x 4'H (1500g ish) tank for when I finally buy a house with a decent size garage.
I'm just curious though.... How do you maintain these beastly tanks or do you set them up so they pretty much maintain themselves? In other words, it would take a looooooong time to vacuum 50 square feet of substrate, not to mention a 400-500 gallon water change once a week would cause the water company to knock on my door for sure lol.
So how do these guys do it? Hire a weekly aquarium service?
