For me, that's the bottom line, right there.
My small (3/4') very active male delta lives in 1.8gal of water in a bare-bottom tank. I change 60plus percent of his water whenever it gets to .25ppm ammonia. That means I do a water change every day.....EVERY DAY!
My two full grown male VTs share 4 gallons and get a 50% change every four days whether they need it or not. Usually they don't need
it, as they test less than .25ppm NH3.
Go figure. Hmmm...
I think maybe I'll start a thread with this question.
