    How often do I need to do water changes in a tank that's just been set up?

    I should've been more clear. What I meant was if there are lots of nutrients in the tank from aqua soil will I need to do water changes very often as the tank isn't cycled yet so the plants aren't growing very much so not using the nutrients and I want to prevent as much algae as possible?

    How often do I need to do water changes in a tank that's just been set up?

    alright i think ive finally decided what i want to stock. Could i do an apistogramma, 12 cardinal tetras, a siamese algae eater and some cory's
