Is the tank in a sunny window?
I dont think 50% change at once is a good idea. The sunny shines toward the side. I covered that area with aluminum foil. The heavy blanket did help out with the blooms on the gravel and glass, so there was a positive side to it. I just have green water now. I can do water changes but I heard some water clarifiers will do the trick.
