5.5 gal questions.

I just got a 5.5 gallon tank for my birthday & I am going to divide it for my two boys (They are currently in .5-.75 gallons so I'm sure they would love the 2.75 gal each).

Is 2.75 gal each sufficient? Also, the tank is heated and filtered.. how much/many water changes should I do a week?

Well.. Happy Birthday first and 2.75 g is probably good but i would prefer to see larger (i spoil my betta fish) and i'm guessing you should change it every two weeks or small changes every week. Good luck!

It's fine, Briser. Perfectly fine. In fact, 2.5 gallons is the minimum recommended size, so it's perfect.

Yes, that's fine. As far as water changes, I would do 60-70% every week. And while it's cycling I'd do it twice a week.
