I would do more water changes than that because it is smaller so organics will dissolve in the water more frequently than in the 175g.

I have a 4g and a 29g biocube. I do weekly water changes of about 15-20%. More on the pico. It's easy enough to maintain but like stated, you have to be on top of things. I test probably every few days, but thats more for my amusement I guess than need. If anything goes wrong though, the smaller size can work against you.

I also have 2- 125g tanks and find I do less work on them, not sure if it has anything to do with the extra volume or that it just is that much easier with more water.

Depends on your test results. If something dies and produces and ammonia spike you have to immediately take care of it with pwc's.

Very little, except for pwc weekly. I believe this keeps maintenance to a minimum.

I have a 16 gallon I clean the glass about once a week and do a pwc every two weeks and that has kept my tank very clean and stable
