Oh I see. That is kinda cool when you say it that way.
That doesn't sound too hard. Now how often should I do a water change? I have heard twice a week one 50% and then 100% water change. Would you say that is correct?
I have a 2.5 gal tank with a filter that houses a betta, snail and two live plants.
