I do a water change at least once a week, sometimes twice.

Weekly to latest by-weekly if you have a well planted tank.

On a side note I'd like to point out the stock you have there is not exactly ideal being the calm tetras vs the super hyper active barbs (which the barb's really should be house in larger groups and a larger tank that offers more swim room for them) and the stand alone Cory really is not good at all these fish need to live in group, you really may want to consider returning this one to your LFS.

I have only fake plants. The lone cory is not my fault; he was the last one. Thanks for the advice anyway.

You'd really help your fish and the water quality if you could spare a few bucks and add a few bunches of maybe stem plants down the Rd.

Don't plants take a lot of effort? That is what I heard.
