| | Re: Water Changes Help
Most people do partial water changes, such as 50% or 25%. They may suck up some excess mulm but they usually don't root around in the gravel with the siphon. They do not remove plants, fish, or inverts. I am not sure what other people do about the problem of sucking up fish or inverts inadvertently (no pun intended), but I put plastic window screening over the end of the siphon.
