You're right, its not boring yet. I welcome a boring, worry free day.

just take a deep breath then relax. here's the hard part.day 1 look into tank.see if fishes are ok.put food in watch them eat. leave tank alone.
day 2 same thing
day 3 same thing
day 4 same thing
day 5 same thing
day 7 do a 20% water change

hehehehe not so hard eh.you seem to worry too much that you wont be able to enjoy your tank or relax.the tank is there for your enjoyment.so try to enjoy it.

this is how i look after so many tanks.only my sw tanks need daily attention apart from feeding as i need to check the salinity and do a top up and on the 7th day i need to put in other stuff so a test is only done then to make sure the params are ok for my corals
