But I'm working with that. I heard that anymore than 35% water change is dangerous. Also I don't have that much water, I'd have to go to the store a lot more to get more. I use spring water from water and ice. Sent from Petguide.com Free App
There's nothing dangerous about changing water over any certain amount unless you water in the tank is really fowled. Then you need to do multiple small water changes over the course of a couple of days. If you keep it clean from the get go then larger water changes are fine. I do 50% water changes in all my tanks every week.
May I ask why spring water and not tap water??
