Ooooook! So I have a new 5 gallon and the last time I had a Betta was YEARS ago. My tanks is ready for my new little Betta, I'm getting him in a couple of days. All the water chemicals are fine and the temperature is perfect. So my questions:
1-Is it okay if I do a 50% water change a week?
2-How often should I do a big cleaning and do 100% water change?
3- When I do my 50%, what technique do you usually use to clean the rocks at the bottom? I heard about a siphon but I can't find any at my local petstore, should I get one at LFS?
That's about it, if you guys have a good cleaning routine to give me i'd be really happy!
