My mom and I just moved him in there so we haven't changed it yet. I told my mom to not feed him for a few days to see if he's better, and I know about heaters..I tell her all the time lol. I think I'ma just buy one and put it in there for her because she's been lazy about it.

It said in the manual to do it every 3-4 weeks. Is that correct?

no because beneficial bacteria grow there and you never want to change it, just swish it under old tank water to get gunk out.
