With a larger, filtered, planted tank you want to avoid those 100% water changes.. the plants use the waste of the fish as fertilizer. What is ideal for your tank would be 1 30-50% water change per week with vacuuming of the gravel once every 2-3 weeks.
There is a thing as too clean/sterile for fish tanks.. it's a balancing act to keeping them healthy. It may not of caused any problems by what you are doing now, but it can down the road.
Just wanted to let you know that... to help keep your little one in tip top shape!
