My fish are very healthy only when it comes in time of water change. I utilize the spill-free phyton kit, so basically water comes out and new water goes back in right away then i add the water conditioner after the tank is filled back up. Maybe is because this, my fishes are experiencing shock. However, using this spill free water exchange method is so simple and quick, and best of all, no mess in my carpeted room.
When you start to re fill the tank make sure you put in the conditioner first. I like to put it on the intake side of the filter. Then when the tank is filled I put in another full dose of water conditioner. This works ewell for me. I use a siphon system to get the water out via a bucket , a 3/4" hose & some pre made PVC lengths for an accurate WC at 50 %. I re fill from a kitchen faucet to which I attached a 3/8" 50 ' coil hose. It works well for me.
