THAT looks like Aurora!!! Maybe they are related?
How much times do you have to clean a 2.5 gallon when it is filtered well?

If it is not cycled a 2.5 gallon should get two 100% cleanings every week. If it is cycled it should get 1-2 50% changes weekly.

Yeah.. pretty much. I have an Anubias nana and it is doing great in my low light tank so that is a good choice.

If the tank isn't cycled than ammonia will slowly build up to toxic levels unless you do 100% changes. You can't see the toxic waste in the water unless you have a test kit. If your tank is cycled than you can get away with 1 20% change but its always better to do more.

Okay, is there anything else i should know about the maintenance of the anubias nana? Like how to keep it healthy(feeding wise) or will it stay fine off the nitrates in the water on its own?

I dose my tanks with Flourish Excel and Flourish Comprehensive, but I will say that my plant has done great even before I did that so its not necessary. Just make sure your anubias doesn't get a lot of light (like maybe put it in the shade of another plant). Even with a low watt bulb the leaves can start to turn yellow if it gets too much light. Also don't plant it, you have to tie it to a driftwood or rock, etc (you probably already know that but just for people that might not know).

okay, my tank is setup in my room opposite of the side of the window so that should be fine right? and i barely open my window blinds anyways so seldom light comes in. And i have a lamp setup next to the tank also. Will all that be okay?
