Oh you wanted to know how.. sorry.

Well, to calculate ten percent of fifty five, you would multiply fifty five by .1, .2 for 20. For five percent it would be .05, and so on.

I use a kitty litter bucket... I took a gallon jug and filled the bucket with the jug. When it reached the handles it was 4 gallons. thats what I use to do water changes. So if I take 4 buckets full of water out of my tank its approx. 16 gallons.
Is that what u wanted to know?
