5.5 gallon tank, when to clean

So I just bought a 5.5 gallon tank for Jonah. Big jump from a 1 gallon, I hope he won't freak out.

Anyway, how often should I clean it? It's filtered but uncycled. I am aware that I can cycle this but unfortunately I don't have the time to cycle it.

Thank you :)
Lizzy

Uh, it's going to cycle on it's own. If it's filtered, you have no choice but cycle it. Either way, you have to do 2 50%s per week. One gravel siphoning, and the other just water.

+1 once every other week I'd do a 100% water change as well.
