ditto Silver,

when doing a weekly water change, you should leave your fish in their tank whilst gravel vacuming and replacing 30% of the water. Moving them to another tank is stressful and therefore best avoided. You can still clean algae off the glass and any plants/ormaments with the fish in the tank. Don't clean the whole thing in one go though, cos you don't want to upset the tank's cycle. Apologies if I'm telling you how to 'suck eggs'!
