This is my tank, and it has:
1 [Male] Twin-tail Half-moon Betta
7 Ember Tetras
2 Mystery Snails
And a Nerite Snail
My question is, how am I supposed to clean my tank? Should I take my betta out, or leave him in with the other fish?
How am I supposed to gravel vacuum tight spaces where plants are? I just planted a lot of the plants so they're not really attached to the gravel yet
Should I be doing 30% or 50% water changes? My ember tetras are new, so I'm not sure what the usual number of nitrate is, but before I added them it was 5ppm to 10 ppm at most. The plants are helping a lot
I'm quite new, and I really don't want to upset my stock with water changes; and I'm more or less likely to do one sooner or later (since my tank is going to go through a mini cycle for the tetras)
Thank you for reading, I'd appreciate any advice!
