    Question When Can I water change?


    0 Not allowed!
    I added 4 new harlequin rasboras to my tank yesterday to increase my school from 4 to 8 in my 30 gallon. How soon am I recommended to do another water change? I don't want to stress the new arrivals too much. I usually do 1 once a week, and my last one was about 7 days ago, give or take a day.

    I've done water changes less than 4 hours after adding new fish, not had a casualty yet. I'd say just do one now
    My therapist says I need a bigger tank . . . . .

    Are you able to test your water?

    I was going to say you don't have to do a water change unless you need to, and testing the water would tell you if you needed to.

    I always do my water change before adding the new fish. It just eases my mind.

    I know what you mean lol. After I add fish, I am always terrified that there was something I could've and should have done before adding. I have learned to do as much as I can beforehand so im able to reassure myself afterwards lol
