I do partial changes during the week--around a gallon, since that's what the siphon picks up when I vacuum the gravel--and a full change once every 10 days. I do have a filter, a Top Fin 10 power filter, that's baffled and a slim heater by hydor.

I usually do a 25% change or a 50% change- I try to do about 25% once a week and 50% acouple times a month.. Once in awhile i'll do 95%, but rarely- the tank has to have some sort of problem with it for me to do that.

Now, i did say 'try', i do slack a bit on the three 5 gallons i have since they all have really good filters and when i do vacuum them it's usually about 40% i take out.

Here's mine. That's Pierre in the upper right corner. It's a 10 gallon tank, all fake plants. I'd like to try real ones someday but this being my first tank I wanted to take things slowly...

Funny how a picture can make a 2.5 gallon and a 10 gallon look the same size! I love the different stone arches everyone has as well!

Most of these plants are from the craft store, and I had to make the leaves into plants that stood up as I used the parts with the metal in the stems.

Does anyone think that I have too much in mine? Several leaves are not attached, so they just fall to the bottom.
