You should. Won't make a difference. Just make sure the water you WC with isn't too far off from tank TDS/pH. You don't wanna use RO/DI water to straight WC a tank with 500TDS. And don't do more than 10% at once. '
I've done 10% WC's in my 10G tank with straight RO/DI water without berried mamas dropping eggs. My tanks are at ~180TDS.
