No from me. I enjoy having a daily task for my tank. Only 5-10 minutes here and there. I do 35% water change every 10 days, so were ever that ends up it ends up. Not sure what else there is to do but watch corals grow.

Saturday mornings I do testing and filter sock change as well as skimmer cleaning. If I am motivated I will also do a water change, if not I do it on Sunday.

I chose other.
I try to do the tasks more so when needed or during the week. I prefer to do more enjoying it on the weekends or save weekends for new additions.

Fill SW container Friday after taking kiddo to school and let it mix till Sunday and run testing.
Sunday is scrape glass and turkey baste rockwork to remove any debri and let filter pick it up. Clean skimmer cup and neck, change mechanical media, 30% water change with lots of sand vacuuming. Detail outside glass and stand and lid. Feed and enjoy the tank.

I use the weekend, as well as M-T-*****. But I suppose the weekend is best for anything particularly time consuming like water changes, lots of testing, sump cleaning, or re-arranging things.
On weekdays I'll often scrape glass, clean skimmer cups, change filter socks, test Alk & Ca, or just generally putter.

Week days after work we like to enjoy the tank.
Saturday morning prepare new saltwater for Sunday morning water change.
Along with water change we swap out filter socks and cleanup any salt creep and remove some chaeto.
The only week day activity might be to scrape the glass.
