Water changes

Hello all I'm a recently new betta owner and I had a question about water changes. I couldn't find any articles about this although I'm sure they are out there somewhere. I want to make sure I'm not doing it wrong so what is the step by step way I should be doing a water change and how many times a week for a 2.5 gallon tank?

Thanks!

Does your tank have a filter?

Then you will want to do two 50% water changes per week. One water only and one with a gravel siphon to remove debris. Hope this helped :)

ok so when doing the 50 percent water change what is a step by step, that is more of what I was wondering. I've never had a fish before and I want to make sure I'm doing everything right! thanks
