Ha. No what I am saying is when I am home the tanks are taken care of properly. When I am away they need scheduled water changes.

Lifting? Not a chance. 100 gallon water change takes 53 seconds with 3 ball valve twists.

I think it's when you replace the water that has evaporated?

A water change is when you remove saltwater from the system and replace it with clean saltwater to remove some contaminants. Replacing the evaporation is normally done with an auto top off. And to replace evaporation you must use fresh water not saltwater because the salt in your tank doesn't evaporate with the water.

In my 80 gallon I do 5-10 gallon water changes every 1-2 weeks

I was as well. I don't do water changes very often. On one tank the last one was over a year ago. Sorry to derail.
