Fish stress?

When doing a water change are you suppose to take fish out??? And do they get stressed when doing a water change?

No...I wouldn't take the fish out. And depending on the water conditioner that you use to treat the replacement water, they should have a stress coat or other additive (maybe) to relieve the stress that the fish go through. I use a vacuum when doing PWCs, and the fish don't mind it so much anymore. I think they get used to it after a while.

Edit: I mean a gravel vac...not a vacuum...lol
