I also want to take this opportunity to point out that two 50% water changes is not the same as a 100% water change. I'm sure most of you know that, but just pointing it out for any future readers.

If you do a 50% WC, you have 50% old water mixed with 50% new water. If you immediately do another 50% WC you still have about 25% old water mixed with 75% new water.

As opposed to a 100% WC, which is 100% new water.

My friends don't call me "Captain Obvious" for nothing.

THOSE WHO REFUSE KNOWLEDGE ARE DOOMED TO FAIL.

WATER CHANGES ARE THE LIFEBLOOD OF THIS HOBBY. IF YOU DON'T BELIEVE SO OR SIMPLY DON'T FEEL LIKE DOING THEM, RE-HOME YOUR FISH, SELL YOUR AQUARIUM & FIND ANOTHER HOBBY, AS YOU WILL FAIL UTTERLY, COMPLETELY, & MISERABLY.
