Survey: maintenance schedule

Kelly asked:

Water changes (how much & how often) 135 gal tank, water change anywhere 
from 30 - 40% every 14 days.
Water testing (how often)
    Nitrates: 3 times per week
    Iron: 3 times per week
    KH: 3 times per week
    GH: 3 times per week
Gravel vacuuming (how much & how often) During every water change, I 
vacuum about 25%. (To many plants to navigate around).
Other tests & maintenance:

	Phosphates: About 2 times per week.
	Plant trimming: Every water change. Stuff grows like weeds.
	Ammonia/Nitrite: Once per week, just to be save here.
