    It's easy to do the 50% water change, for me, I just use a turkey baster since the tank is kind of small, and just suck up the poop and what not, you can do that too

    Hi Minnie, Ivory's water has been warm enough, so I have removed both the heater and the filter. Since my pain is flaring up everyday, I can only manage to change 100 % of his water every 6 or 7 days. I have been doing this routine for well over a month, maybe 2 months. I have moved into a south facing apartment. If I need to put the heater back into his tank this year, I will take the advice you gave me and change his water twice a week.
    Thank you very much

    Hey, I'm super sorry for this super late reply, I haven't been on this forum in so long, I'm not sure if you still need this information, but you should change the water twice a week, one 50% and one 100%

    Hi minnie, I was trying to find opinions on what percentage and how often I need to change my beta's water. He is in a heated and filtered 2.5 gallon tank. I have posted this question somewhere in the forum, but I found your post saying that you want to help new beta owners.
