Default Introducing new fish - Water Change

HI everyone

I have a debate, just got a good deal to purchase some duboisi from my LFS.
The problem I have is that last week I made a big WC 80% and did a rearrangement of my tank.
The procedure/steps i use is that i take out most of the water, transfer the fish to a small qtank for the time, make some new rock arrangements and fill the tank, acclimatate the fish for a while, and thats it, lights out for a day, no food for 1 day.
But know i dont know if it is good for the fish if I do another big WC so soon so i can introduce the new fish (10 new dubs).

Have anyone done something different, or do you think the fish will be OK If i do a Big WC again?

Hope to hear from you guys.

Another large water change shouldn't be an issue. Actually, the more you do water changes the less stressful they will be because the parameters won't be changing as much compared to if you waited a very long time to do one.
