I've found over the years that most fish enjoy a good sized water change and become more active after one. Many species, like cory cats for example tend to spawn after a WC with slightly cooler water. I have 12 adult breeding angels in my 220g and always use water a couple degrees cooler than the tank water and it's very common for spawning to occur shortly after a WC.

PS: I'm female... lol!

Hello ad...

Waste products take time to build up to harmful levels. If you change half the water every week, then there's no time for toxins to build up before it's time to change the water again. Your fish and plants will always live in water with a stable water chemistry. The more tank water you change and the more often you change it, the healthier the inhabitants.
