When I had a 1.5G I cleaned it 100% twice a week. You could get away with one 100% and 50% if you wanted to though. I'm just anal about having clean tanks.hehe :P

I think I read the same thing. you should be able to get by on a 100% twice weekly schedule though.

Daily might just stress out the fish for no reason.

IMO you need to do at least one 100% and a 50%. But since ammonia builds up so quickly in smaller tanks, it's really best to be doing two 100% water changes a week. That's why we say bigger is better...than you don't have to do as many water changes.
