Question Water Changes

I have a 1 Gallon aquarium. My Betta named Oscar is inside it. His Ph is at 7.0 ( Exactly what he needs ).

How often should I change the water of the aquarium and how much? The man which sold him to me said 50% once a week. It has no filters and I use aquasafe on it ( 3 Drops per Gallon ).


Thanks for all, Fieldz and Oscar.

For a tank that small you would need 1 100% water change and 1 50% water change a week

And you would also need to clean gravel and plants when you do it

well for 1 gallon, it should be more like 2 50% changes and 1 100% change.

In a 1gal unfiltered tank without active growing live plants...water changes of twice weekly....1-50% and 1-100% should maintain water quality...provided that you don't over feed and uneaten food is removed within a reasonable time....
