I think I've been doing something wrong with this set up

I think I've been doing something wrong with my set up I have this tank with salvinia minima and a hygro plant I was reading that I shouldn't do 100% water change anf I do one every week so am I wrong or that's a good way to do it ?

You wouldn't do 100% water changes on a cycled tank. If you're getting a reading of 40 ppm I'd do a 50% water change. Hopefully someone will come along and give you more advice.

I just read the post about nitrogen cycle and there's where I saw that we don't do 100% wc I feel bad now even though I acclimate him before getting him back it's something I shouldn't do :(
