Question How often do I need to change my water?

I have 1 betta and 9 minnows in a 10 gallon tank with a filter for 5-15G tanks. I also have a medium sized plant.

Is it cycled? Are you planning on cycling it?

Do a 70% change once a week I'd say, to be safe. The one plant will not have a large effect on the ammonia and nitrite present.

Would 3 25% changes work?

Just curious, is the aquarium heated? Cause minnows are cold water fish and bettas are tropical fish.

And +1 to the advice already given.
