Talking hello!

HI everyone! I have been reading thish forum for a couple of months and I am finally getting my first betta!!! I'm so excited! But I do have a question. How many water changes should I do on an uncycled 3 gallon? I read on this site that I sould do 100% every 3 days. I'm just making sure That I have every thing perfect, I do want him to be happy. I have a buget of $120. Thank you for all your input! I hope to become a active member of the forum! (btw. I can get my betta in about 2 weeks)

50% once a week should be fine :)

Wow hun. :) for some reason reading someone's post made me smile today. Thank you! Anyways, here's what you can do with that budget. Go out and buy a whisper3i filter. Its no more then 15 dollars anywhere. Mine was 12 dollars i think at petsmart. Its a filter for 1-3 gallon tanks. I use it on my 2.5 gal. With the filter I would do 30 % changes once a week. 50% changes can stress the fish too easily. Plus, having a filter just helps a LOT in the long run. So please do this!
With love- zeli
