Does topping the aquarium water increase stress in fish\shrimp?
Every other day or so ,I take one,maybe two liters of water from my 10g ,and use it to water plants around the house.By the end of the week ,when I usually do the weekly partial water change ,the water level is lowered ,all I have to do is to refill the tank.
I don't refill (top)the aquarium after each time I remove water ,cause I read that even small partial water changes can cause shrimp to molt ,so if I were to do this days in a row they will get stressed and left without energy for their molts.(dunno if it's a myth or not).
My question is ,can I top off the aquarium immediately after removing water(which I do every 2-3 days to water houseplants) ,because I like when my tank is full up to the top(who doesn't?) or should I only refill it when doing the weekly water change as not to cause molts in shrimp?
I hope people are able to understand my question ,i have the flu with high fever and it's really hard for me to concentrate.Thanx
