    Hi Robin,
    it depends on the tank size and how much shrimps you keep in it. In a small breeding tank (12l or 25l) I change about 40% every week if the population is pretty big. With a handful of shrimps 20-30% every week would also be ok.
    In my large dense planted show tank I change the water every second week. It change about 30% of the tank's volume.

    regards
    Robert

    I have not done a WC on my shrimp tank for awhile and only topped off due to normal evaporation. No far, no casualties, but this route is not recommended for many.
