In a tank that small I'd say to do complete water changes once or twice a week. Remember to dechlorinate the water before putting it in the tank.

Thats for a larger,cycled tank. Ammonia can build up pretty quickly in a small tank so the water needs to be changed pretty often.

Is the opening large? Like could you just scoop water out with a cup?
