Water Change Question!

Hey guys! I have a 2 gallon tank. I change my water twice a week, 50% water change during saturdays and 100% during wednesdays. Is my method okay? or should i change my method in cleaning. God Speed!

That sounds about right to me...Maybe try 3 50% changes during the week, so there is not the big 100% change, I find it stresses my bettas out quite a bit if it isn't the exact same water, temperature, etc. So-Monday, Wednesday, then Saturday 50% changes instead of 50% wednesday and 100% saturday :) I'm not an expert or anything, but thats what I would do ;) Good luck with your new 'fishy' friend!!

the two changes a week, one 50, one 100 should be just right for any tank in the 1-4 gal range. Just don't forget the water conditioner and try to keep the temperature close to not shock your lil guy.
