Water Changes

Random quick question,

We've been changing our Bettas water once a week (100% change), noticed so many people saying water change twice a week... is it okay to do one 50% water change and one 100% water change a week? Our Bettas seem happy and are building bubble nests quite often. Could we get away with doing one complete water change and one half change a week?

thanks in advance

I change the water in my 2.5 gallons once a week. Everyone has their own ways of doing things. Some like to do full 100% changes twice a week and others prefer 1 100% change and 1 50% change.

I try to do 100% water changes twice a week with my 2.5Gs but sometimes I'm so busy I don't have the time to do it twice(with 12 tanks it takes some time). Ammonia builds up pretty fast in smaller tanks, but do what you feel best for your fish. If you have time to clean the tank more, that's great. You can never clean a tank too much! :)
