Why would you be scared to do more water changes. That is the best thing to keep your fish healthy and happy! They will be even better with fresh clean water more often.

Agree with Rohland! Water changes are great for your fish!
Please try to get the water tested for ammonia and nitrite.

i'm working on the water changes, lost the dwarf guirami male, still full of color when i found him,
so i'm going to get the test for ammonia, but tank is cycled, i'm thinking nitrite spike, or nitrate w/e
seems like all my south american tropicals are happy as a lark though it was a bit overstocked, live and learn
never had a small tank
