if you do every week, you would need to change all the water. killing good bacteria is the least of your problems with small unfiltered tanks and bowls. if you don't change the water often enough, all the toxins that build-up can kill your fish. I change 50% of the water in my 1 1/2 gallon every day with no problems, and my betta is as happy as ever (tho I will admit that he's growing out ripped up fins)betta freak said:bowl water needs to be cleaned every week as not to kill too many bactria

I have a male betta at my house named Sun Fire I though he was dying but thankfully he is much better now. I have a 10 gallon for my 4 female bettas. But one was way to aggressive so I had to take her out now there are 3 female bettas in there. Hey but I don't know if the aggressive one was just a male plakat betta or not anyone know how to tell the difference?
Is he going to give you the filter and gravel too? If not maybe he will give you a piece of the media to jump start your cycle.betta freak said:the 15 is already cycled I'm just waiting for my hiegbor to get a bigger tank for the Oscar so I can buy it.
