The one thing I learned after running an 80 gal. reef for over ten years, is that it is FAR better to be proactive and do tank maintenance regularly before things go horribly wrong. Keeping fish and corals is no different than owning a dog, cat or whatever, except the four legged critters can let you know when it's time for dinner. Whether you dose by hand or use more automatic means, a simple log book and a regular schedule are mandatory in my opinion. If you "fall behind", meaning you have lost interest, it should also tell you it's time to consider getting out of the hobby.
