Considering SW whats maintenance like on these?

I am considering starting a SW tank. I currently have 3 FW. 10g, 29g, 75g. I also have a empty 10.

I am thinking of either converting the 29g or 75g and then using the 10g for a sump. I know there will be a considerable cost difference to convert the 75g vs 29g to SW but I'm not really concerned about that - my biggest question is how much daily/weekly/monthly maintenance is it with the difference sizes. From what I read it would be easier with the 75g because of water volume but I would like to hear from the people who have tanks set up of these two sizes. Is it really more work to maintain the smaller or bigger tank? I'm wondering actual time you spend daily/weekly/monthly basis.

You will spend the same amount of time on both tanks, only difference being it will take you longer to clean the glass. Checking water parameters weekly, cleaning your skimmer cup weekly, and making top offs.
