With a cycled 10 gallon, that seems about right for water changes. Can't wait to set up my planted 10 gallon sorority tank. It's going to be amazing. I'm doing Asian temple or Zen garden themed. I wanted to bring some essence from Thailand and Malaysia to my betta to make them feel more at home.

Really I thought a planted filtered ten gallon tank with one male Betta only needed a 10 percent like another member told me. Carters tank theme is tons of live plants.

I'm going all out on a true aquascape with a great layout.

Also 25%-50% tank drain a week I think is good on a cycled 10 gallon....with gravel vac unless you have bottom feeders who can take up what the plants don't use.

I love aquascaping. With bottom feeders you need more water changes they create waste and wont eat everything.

That's why imo shrimp are the best bottom feeders. They do a good job of eating uneaten food and don't create a lot of waste. Most fish who are bottom feeders only really eat algae.
