Exclamation Since he only likes the 1/2 gallon...

how often do I do water changes? I've only worked with 5-10 gallon tanks, so I'm lost when it comes to something this small.

Well, that's all I need to know. How often do I do 50% water changes and how often do I do a full cleaning? Thanks!

Once a week for both Id think. Ammonia would build up fast in something that small.

50% only once a week? I thought it would be more then that. I do a 50% twice a week with my uncycled 5 and 10 gallon tanks. Or is that too much?

I second guess myself a lot, can you tell? :P

I mean do a 50% and a full change once a week. Like maybe a 50 in the beginning of the week and then a 100 at the end..something like that...I know the feeling!! With a 10 gallon you dont have to do as much wcs,and they are easy to cycle! Well easier than smaller tanks haha...

I was doing something like that, but didn't know if that was too much or too little.

Thanks for all the help everyone!
