My 75 had gone for almost 2 months with only top offs, and with all the plants it had at the time STILL only had a 15 Nitrate when I did the change. The only reason I even did a water change was that tank usually ran about 5 for nitrates on a bad day. Then again when I top that tank off it was taking about 7 gallons a week.

I didn't think we were counting ponds! I recently did a forced water change on mine (raccoons drained it) but before that it had been a solid year. I've always thought it was weird it never has nitrates, its 300g but at its most populous it had in excess of 13 adult comets and commons.

The longest I waited was just under 5 weeks so just over a month, it was my 55G convict tank, Nitrates were 60, but they are such hardy fish and doesnt seem to phase them the least bit and are still growing like weeds, I was topping it off about 2 gallons a week, normal water change for that tank is ever 3 weeks, nitrates are around 40.
