Cleaning a 5 gallon

Hi! I might be getting a betta a 5 gallon! So how would you clean it? It is a 100 percent water change?

Sorry this is late. A tank that size would be better off cycled. I had a 4 gallon that I didn't cycle and I just did partial changes every week then a full change once a month. It was a pain in the hind end to clean it that way.

I agree with DQ, as always. Cycle it and then you can just do 25% weekly changes. :)
