How often should I change water?

I pretty much know but I was wondering how often I should change the water in my mini bow 1 it has my no name guy in it(who I am thinking of naming Demetri) it obiously has a filter cause it came with one as most of you know.I was just wondering how often should I change the water and how much should I take out? Thanks!

I have a MiniBow1 but I have removed the filter because it would trash my fish all over the tank. Poor thing couldn't get to the food easily because it would be dragged by the current.
I do 50% water changes every 2 days using the gravel vac and 100% every two weeks. Might seem excessive but with such a small tank you really need to keep up with your changes.
With a filter, I would say you could go with 100% water changes every 3 days. I wouldn't go more than that and you need to make 100% if you don't vacum your gravel.

Ok thanks I don't have the heart to take the filter out this new guy is strange he likes to shove himself between the filter and the wall giving himself barely any room and bending himself in half. I do vacum my gravel so I think I will do one 100% change once a week at the end of the week and one 50% in the middle of the week.
