I'm going to look into that Walstad method. I would be content with just my Angels in the tank. Though I will need to get at least one more female. The three I have I purchased together. They were about the size of a quarter at the time. Here we are a few months later, and they are a nice size, but it appears I have one female and two males. Two have paired off, and there's a bit of testosterone in the tank. They spawned a couple of weeks ago, but my tank isn't set up for that, and when I woke the next morning, the eggs were gone. She placed the eggs on an air line in the tank. Not the best of places. I did have just my Pleco in the tank by herself for quite a while, and my levels were all excellent. I really only added new water when I had evaporation loss.Chlorine/chloramine - if the water supply has chlorine, you have the choice of leaving all the new water to stand in an open container for a day or two for the chlorine to gas off, or use dechlorinator. Chloramine does not gas off so if that is used in the water supply a dechlorinator must be used.
Most people now recommend at least 50% a week with many doing 75% a week. Most of us to not have the kind of set up that allows us to do no water changes. Are you thinking of the Walstad method? With this method, the tank is very lightly stocked - far fewer fish than most of us a willing to keep.
