Welcome to the Forum!

1. Change out the media only when it is unusable. Six weeks before, add new media to run along with it so new can seed.

2. Get a gravel vac or use a piece of airline tubing.

3. Five gallons should have one 25% weekly water change and vacuum.

4. Are you using gravel or sand? If gravel just rinse and add. If sand there are several YouTube videos on how to do so with a soda bottle.

5. No need to cover the tank.

6. Betta can go two or so weeks without food. Do a water change the day you leave. Feed him a tad more in the days leading up to your departure. No food in = No food out = Cleaner tank.
