How often do you do water changes?

Just occurred to me that I have no clue on water changes for my community tank. I really need to put what I have in my siggy like some of you do.

But ~ how often does one do a water change with tropical fish that you can barely see? LOL! I am use to doing them every day of my life to once a week ~

Now I am confused!

Weekly 25-30% water changes should be fine.

LOL, love the signature line.

I do 50% weekly on all my tanks (not counting the discus tank, as you already know what I do with that one!) but all my tanks are planted and also overstocked. The way your tank sits now I agree with Jeaninel that a 25 to 30% would be perfectly fine.
