Just my opinion: water changes won't hurt fish unless there is somthing wrong with the water your adding, or if ph is off from going too long without changing. If ammonia and nitrites are high, large frequent waterchanges might be the best way to save the fish. When fish are added before the tank is cycled, I think daily water changes are good practice. 90% seems excessive to me, but if it is dechlorinated and up to temp
, it won't hurt the fish.

Keep in mind there is a direct correlation between stock level and water change frequency and size, I have a much larger bio-load than I would ever recommend to average home hobbyist

Thanks for your input rickey. What would you reccommend for hobbyist with established tanks and typical bio load? I have 75 gal, 40 gal, 29 gal, and two smaller tanks. Your thoughts about % change and frequency would be much appreciated.
