Byron I see that you do not feed your crew before a water change, is that due to stress on a full stomach or what? I was doing the opposite, I give them a really good feed, wait an hour or so and then clean out the tank really good. That way I have sucked up all of their fresh poo and old food and the tank is so clean and fresh.
Yes. I can't remember the science, but I think it has something to do with the effect on their digestive process that follows. They should be relatively calm to properly digest food.

Considering the excitement caused by just stepping up to the tank to feed, I dunno if the calm is possible
