How soon is it safe to do a water change with new golden nugget. I don't want to stress it out.

Give him a week to get used to his new home and it should be OK.

I would make sure he has a hiding spot to go to should feel stressed and want to hid someplace to go to feel safe.

None of my plecos get stress over waterchanges.

gold nuggets love clean, oxygenated water and an established tank. they graze on the microfilm and awfuchs on the decor and such. as long as your tank is well established, I don't see anything wrong with a wc providing it's not fluctuating your ph.
