Chloramine breaks itself down. Again, at concentrations that it is in your
tap water, you can do a 20% change, and it will not hurt the fish (or the
filter bacteria). It will breakdown and dissipate before 24 hours has gone.
Ask someone who owns a swimming pool how much chlorine he/she goes through,
just because it dissipates out.
