Question WC's in a 2.5 gallon tank?

So, I just bought a 2.5 gallon today! If you read my other post, I was going to get a 5 gallon, but that just didn't happen. Anyways, I would like to know when I should clean my tank, and should I still be doing 100% wc's?

In my 1 gallon tank, I did weekly water changes, and my water parameters were always perfect. So should I do the changes in this tank every 1.5-2 weeks? Thanks

I'd say once every week to 10 days.

I would do any tank over 1 gallon weekly. The cleaner you keep your water, the less chance of disease you have.

If it is unfiltered still do 100% changes.

well, since I have a filter(tetra whisper filter), should I do like 50-75% weekly, or still do 100%? That's what I would do with my gallon(filtered)and it was always fine

20-30% water changes would be better.
