Quarantine & Tank cleaning

Hello hobbyists, I'm currently quarantining my Orandas in a 20L. I've recorded a video of the whole tank cleaning procedure (time lapsed to around 3 mins). Please take a look and let me know, if this is the correct procedure or need any change. Thanks.

The main problem I see is that there will be a fairly large pH spike between water parameters. Check the ph of your tap water and then compare that to your tank water. 9 times out of 10 it's more than fish should be subjected to.

That's why 50% is about the most water that is recommended to change out at once.

Yeah got that, I do check PH before changing the water everyday. It is almost same as my tap water around 8. I guess may be because of the daily water change, I'm not seeing big change. Anyway I'll keep an eye on the PH. Thanks.
