    can not say much. It's just depends. how many fish and how much you give for their food and how much coral and how many dose and what you coral dose etc..

    very different advice on water change. MASA something tells it over the water change

    Hi guys the question why water changes because I was at a reefers house last night he have a 350litre tank packed with about 30fish and a lot of corals he's doing n water change every 4months he feed ones a day and his tank is looking stunning so my question is do water changes work for some tanks and not for other tanks

    did you ask him what else does he dose?
    Does he have lots of corals? How many SPS?

    Every system is different.

    Even if his corals looks good, he might have a slow growth rate. Doing proper water changes or correct dosing to keep all parameters and trace elements in check will enhance the coral growth rates.
