Every morning a tank. One third. You always have healthy fish and beautiful plants. Check. TTS maximum 200 ppm
That's strange. My plants are always healthy and so are my fish. I change my water much less often and I have 150ppm TDS
(I assume you meant?)
OP Water changes are 100% necessary but the frequency and amount really depends on the tank in question in my opinion. The more experienced you become and the more familiar you become with how your tank and livestock reacts to water changes you can easily devise your own routine with good reasoning.
Most people do 50% water changes once a week. I would advise the same to beginners. Now I do water changes much less often and little and sold one of my tanks. I don't mind water changes at all
