I've read a lot of of threads about water changes and water cycles. I've read that anything 2+ gallons needs to be fully cycled for a month vs can't be cycled at all. That Water changes need to be every other day for 2 gallons vs 25/50/100 once a week.
So I guess I just need to show you what I have and see what you suggest.
I have a Top Fin 3.5 gallon tank (http://www.petsmart.com/product/inde...uctId=11051817
) It has the filter it came with, baffled with sponges (Both around downstream flow and inside filter so fish can't jump in). I only have 1 Betta and no live plants.
I just got it set up last night and when I get paid this weekend I will get a water testing kit and gravel vaccuum.
I was told that it shouldn't be cycled as anything under 5 gallons is hard to do. So how often should I be doing water changes? Should I be doing 100% once a week?
