    I got a new betta fish 3 days ago. I’d like to know how long i should wait before doing a 20% water change or does this not matter.

    Dray is spot on!!!! Until you confirm cycling is complete do 25% at least every other day.

    Your betta will thank you!!!!

    if you're doing a fish in cycle, you should be testing regularly and doing water changes to lower ammonia and nitrite.
