Do I ever need to do a 100% water change?

I have a 5g filtered planted tank kept at 80F that I perform 50% wc every week.

Im sorry i don't know if this has been asked already but I wasnt about to read through 121pages to find out :) I did get through 21 but couldnt do it anymore...
I am going to have a 10L/20L tank to breed my siamese fighters in. There is only 10cm high of water. I am wanting to add mystery snails as I hear this is supposed to be good for Infusoria (which I want to feed my fry the first week) anyways, how many mystery snails would be acceptable in a tank this size? Can i add them in while they male and female (mum and dad) are spawning? or wait until the fry are born and add them then?

What can you breed a VT to?

Can HM or HMDT mix with HMPK?

If it is filtered, it will eventually cycle, so you don't need to do 100% water changes.

yes, they're all Plakats. And not all are actually dragon scale. Sometimes they do have dragon scale HM's though :D

Very good to know, I thought so. I'm just used to looking at AB PKs. Lol. fantasy shopping as we speak. Lol. But thats what I'm after, so I wanted to be sure first.

probably a stupid question, but I've had my fish in the tank for a week, so Im guessing it's a good idea to do my first change. However, this is a 33gal. I have a siphon and uh, not sure, do I just suck to get the water flowing? Is there some trick to keep my girls out of the line of fire? And when I add reconditioned water do I add dechlorinator for how much water I add, or the full tank?
I know when I do partial changes in my small tanks dosing for the full size is required, so just wondering.

Girls will be able to stay away from the suction. My guys in a divided 10g do fine. Just don't...you know...try to suck them up...
