Proper Tank Maintenance?
I'm heading to college in a little over a week with a small aquarium, and I'm leaving another tank with my younger brother & sister. I'd like to write up a schedule for tank maintenance, but I want to do it right. Help me out?
For the following, how often would you do water changes and what percent? How often would you rinse or replace filter media?
-- A cycled, filtered (Aqueon PowerFilter 10) 5.5 gallon tank containing a betta, an otocinclus catfish, and a ghost shrimp
-- An uncycled, unfiltered 2.5 gallon betta tank
