Hi,
I usually vacuum the gravel thoroughly and when the water is coming from the gravel pretty clear, I stop . It's usually about 25 or 30% and I try to do it every weekend. If there's any debris left from feeding I'll do a spot cleaning , just taking out the obvious pieces with the vacume .maybe just a couple gallons only using a pail.

I'll do a 15-20% water change, wait two days, then do it again. So I change 40% of the water a week. I really don't need to do it that frequently because my guys eat everything and there's only 3 of them in there but I am an anal retentive dork.

I usually do mine once a month,since I have really good filtration and don't feed too much. But I started doing it once a week with about a 25% water change. I change around sometimes.

they still produce waste, thats why you still have to keep on top of the water changes even if the tank apairs clear. but your most likely all set with that much of a water change. I do a simular 20% on wendsday and on sunday.
