This looks like a great product for raising fry and is applicable to more than just angelfish. There are also some good DIY ideas that can come out of this as well.
How long does it take to replace all the water in your fish tank? You may be surprised to find out that doing two, 50% water changes does not replace 100% of the water.
I found a great online calculator that helps illustrate this point:

“Fish people are weird!”
I heard that sentence a few times over the years from a long-time club member and friend. I did not think much of it initially, just my friend pointing out the obvious goofy behavior we can see at times. But, over time, I’ve learned to understand it, embrace it.
I am weird, and I’m genuinely comfortable with it.
If you are reading this, most of you already realize that, yes, you too, are weird, or have great potential for being weird. For those of you who haven’t picked up on it yet, or are in denial, and I may be telling you this for the first time, but you are at least a little weird.
What am I saying here? We are all The Different, yet commonly linked to this hobby of keeping cichlids, and other fish. And when I mean “The Different”, I am referencing both our individual, personal “differences” and our “oddness,” or, our own individual potential for being weird.
Have you ever answered a non-hobbyist’s question about all the cichlids you keep, about how many tanks you have in your fish room, or other aspects of your fishkeeping and, as you are answering, using all sorts of Latin and Greek names, they begin looking at you strangely? Or they respond, “Oh really? Wow!” and then change the subject? And then you can see the "Weirdo!!" thought bubble over their head....
