That's about what I do on my 125g. Your nitrates will tell you if your changes often enough.

yes, as long as your water parameters are ok... no need to do water change...
however, keeping water longer than normal could deplete the minerals in there,
thus you need to add some new water from time to time..
doing some water change will not do any harm LOL!

I change more than that in my tank, so I doubt that its too much, lol. I typically leave about an ich of water above the top fin of my oscar. He doesn't like it when I do it, but he's gotten used to me doing so.

I always give a treat of blodworms to my tank any time I do any maintenance. It seems they don't mind it to much since they know they will be getting spoiled as soon as I'm done.

it really depends on your nitrate buildup, on my malawi tank I only have to change 30% weekly to keep nitrates below 10-15, whereas i needed to do 50-60% waterchanges twice a week for my oscar tank (roughly same volume)

160 gallon south american
190 gallon malawi

Such an emotional crew during water changes
