My 5 gallon mini bow has 1 nerite snail and 1 male VT. It has a filter, but it was WAY too strong for poor little Velvet. :( So I turned it off. How many water changes should I be doing weekly? When it was filtered I was doing 50% weekly.

In 5gal without a filter and without live plants....50% weekly with vacuum and 100% monthly....depending on how messy the snail...you may need to add a second 50% weekly water only....

If you have live active growing plants...50% weekly with light vacuum should maintain water quality...

Thanks for your help.
