Water changes

Hey guys I have a 20gal divided tank with two bettas and 3 algae eaters and some java moss. How often do you guys think I should change my water?

+1 with billysurf unless your tank isn't cycled then you'll need to test daily & do water changes accordingly. Now, algae eaters? What kind are they, Chinese Algae Eaters? If so, rehome them or get a bigger tank, if not ignore me.

You may want to google them. I have 2 in a 46g, they were less than 2" when I got them 9 months ago, they're both around 4-5" now. They need room, won't eat algae they're whole lives, can be VERY aggressive as they age. So if your 20 is divided I'm guessing they don't have full run of the full tank. You either need to get an appropriate tank for them or see if you can find them a new home.
