Since you have 2 of them in 5 gall ,it like you have 2.5 for each i would really recommend more water changes to prevent future problems:)
Yep! I'm working on cycling so I am doing 50% water changes two to three times a week. I do have some live plants in there (pothos pieces and a Marimo moss ball) and the tank was started with half of its gravel and water from established tanks so we're on our way! I was planning on doing only one 50% change a week once it's cycled, but do you think I should do two water changes because I have the two fish??
