that'll add up to 90% water change with about 82% of your old water has now been changed out.
This works just fine, though you need to make sure all parameters match so things don't get stressed out. That is why I recommend that most people give it at least a week or two, unless they are confident they can have everything on par.

You've done it now, haven't you?
