Water change and new fish
Is it OK to introduce new fish the same day as a water change? Is it too much stress on the new fish?

Generally I do a water change, then go get the fish from the store. Means they are in a new stable environment for at least a week before another water change.My therapist says I need a bigger tank . . . . .

I also usually do the water change first then go buy the new fish.

I think my fish is adjusting well to the four gallon, He's laying on his side attempting to go to sleep on the bottom of the gravel.
