    I would of explained it better if I thought you were just asking, Much like the posters between have.

    No problem, it is definately a learning experience for me.....

    #1 Ensure my post dont come across as sarcastic

    #2 The 25% water changes I have been doing are not good enough
    55 Gallon community tank that is probably a bit overstocked....dont judge me

    Silver lining!

    Meh, Text communication is easy to misconstrue & besides... I really should know better than to post while on hold with the insurance company. The music alone is nearly suicide inducing :-P.

    Gas mileage isn't everything OIIIIIIIO
    Lack of planning on your part does not constitute an emergency on my part.
    Why pretend there are no stupid questions? Actually, There are many stupid questions: "Should I drink this bleach?" Is just one example.
    Having said that, Just because it's a stupid question doesn't mean that it shouldn't be asked. It's better to know.

    A warm beer is better than a cold beer. Because nothing is better than a cold beer, and a warm beer is better than nothing.

    So...regular 75% water changes won't stress out the fish? I've never done more than 50%, and they always act panicked.
    15 gal: 1 butt-ton Malaysian trumpet snails.
    20 gal: 20+ various molly and platy fry.
    55 gal: 40 neon tetras.
    75 gal: 2 Taiwan reef cichlids, 3 pelmatochromis nigrofasciatus juveniles.

    I would venture so far as to say that they aren't panicked, just very active. I notice a lot of activity in my Malawi setups after large wc's. Breeding behavior, aggression, random bursts of speed. I assume they're just excited in an energetic way due to the change.
    Coastie-to-be... hopefully.

    The only ways you will stress fish with a major water change are if there is a notable temperature difference, a ph difference, or you chuck the water in with a fire hose

    I try to do twice weekly water changes of at least 30%. The reason for this is because I have aquasoil that acidifies (and softens) the water somewhat to around 6.5 pH. The water from my tap is 7.5 pH and hard, so to avoid dramatic swings I do more frequent water changes to keep things as stable as possible.
