Others may do differently but I have never done more than a 25% water change on any tank. If the tank is cycled and healthy you should *not* need mroe than that. Usually I'm just doing a 10% change.

I find the best way to do a water change with a small tank and shrimp is this:

1. Airline tubing (IE small tubing)

Hmm. So you'd *just* added some plants? Could there have been something on the plants, any sort of chemical residue?

Had a zebra danio years ago with a hugely deformed spine. He lived for years that way, got around just fine. It didn't appear to spread to any others. This was back in the 80s.

Never know with Betta. I had three that wouldn't even look at shrimp or baby endlers. Now I've got one that hunts everything! Love the idea of this tank and the canister is very cool.
