Salutation:
The potential for creating trouble in our aquariums not only happens from polluted water in the spring, but we should also consider the potential trouble from indoor air quality, after months of reduced fresh air circulation, cooking and heating our homes and our own breathing.
This stale air also provides the ingredients for oxygen / carbon dioxide gas exchange. The notion of poor air quality might cause lower levels of dissolved oxygen in our aquariums reducing the effectiveness of biological filter and mechanical filters and photosynthesis of plants off-setting the balance of the carbon dioxide cycle in the water column.

We need to be aware not only of changes in water quality but also indoor air quality in spring time pollution.

Water changes,and check temp's as weather warm's also.
Most all issues in glass box of water are negligible with regular water changes ,maint.
If you don't know what's in your water,use good all purpose Dechlorinator like PRIME.
Most effective if chlorine,chloramines,metal's are at unknown level's, and last's three times longer than all other conditioner's per ounce.
Will get a feel after a few month's as to how long between water changes, and how much should be changed.
Take care of your water,,,and fishes will be much healthier,happier,longer.

precisely.

the question is how to we maintain a safe healthy environment for our fish when the replacement water changes.

And yes there will be differing opinions.

Which I hope everyone can swap ideas on and benefit from.

After all my ideas are just what works for me and only worth
