I always completely change the water and clean my babies vases (5 pignoseds, 1 softshell, 2 snakes necks and i used to have a bunch of RES but i released them because they overgrew their tanks!)once a week and i fill in the vases with tap water.I have had them for more than 1 year and imho they look great!

:You should almost NEVER do a full water change,especially with something that sensitive to water chemistry. When you do the full change,it eliminates most of your beneficial bacteria in the water which aids in keeping the turtle healthy. Another thing to keep in mind is that they do best with a pH level off 6.5 or so..This would certainlly help to prevent funguses in the first place.
