Hello, I just set up my 10 gallon tank with plants (anubias, java fern, marimo moss ball x2) last week as instructed by petsmart and to add my new betta into the tank a week later. Obviously they did not know what they were talking about because I have done a lot of research since and just realized that it takes longer for the tank to cycle than just one week so now i'm keeping a really close eye for the ammonia and nitrite levels. As I'm reading about water changes I'm a little confused about how much, how often. I've been reading that 25% weekly water changes are good but then I see 50% water changes monthly. Am I to be doing 25% water changes 3 weeks out of the month and the final week a 50% water change? I know to not clean the gravel much, or not even at all, while the tank is cycling so right now I'm just focusing on the water changes. Thanks for the help.
