There's no one "right" way to keep a tank clean. Some people do 50% twice a week, some do 100% every week, it really depends on the person. If you're more comfortable with the 50% changes, then you should do that, and monitor the water parameters daily for a week or two. If the water parameters are always fine, then there's your method, otherwise, you should probably switch to a different approach.

i perfer to do smaller changes more often because i think it puts less stress on the fish.

My bettas don't mind. They swim right into the net and are put into a cup of tank water and since I have no gravel in my betta tanks it takes just a minute to rinse and refill the tanks.

Thanks for all the responses I think I'll probably do around a 75% or so change 2/week
