    Hi, I have some white cloud minnows and I think they have spawned. The water is about a week old now. So my question is, how often should I change the water in a my tank - normally and after spawning? what percentage? Tell me your water change schedule for your tank :)

    thanks

    I do weekly 30% water changes whether fish are spawning or not, some fish such as corys can be triggered to spawn by doing more frequent cooler water changes.

    I do 50% every week just for water cleanliness purposes, not breeding.

    I do about 25% a week. That's just a guide though. It really depends on your stocking levels, bioload, etc.

    I do between 10 and 50% depending on tank inhabitants. The only change I make is if there are fry or eggs in the tank I drip the water back in a a slower rate than normal.
