On average, I do my high light 10 gallon once a week. 50% water change. If I an trying to make it look real nice and clear for photos, I might change it every 2 days, 50%.

My lowlight 10 gallon with crypts and anubias/ no CO2 I change every 2-3 weeks. Basically when I see the glass is a little dirty.

I have a 5.5 gallon, low light with ferns, mosses, and crypts mainly and I do it every 1-2 weeks. It is a grow out tank for 5 rosy barbs. I know I should change this more but .......

I also an setitng up a 15 that i had laying around (as we speak actually:) )and it will get the same treatment as my oter high light tank.

All of my tanks are low to moderate fish loads. High light 10: 7 neon tetras, 5 amano shrimp, 5 ghost shrimp (a couple of each shrimp will go to the 15 gallon) low light 10: 3 neons, 2 bolden barbs, 2 ottos, 1 zebra danio and one spotted cory.
