IMO weekly would be best but you could do every two weeks also. Smaller tanks you have to be very dilligent as they are less forgiving for errors and water issues.

I do them every couple days/every week. Doing them that way becomes a habit pretty quickly, and in the long run is really worth it

I do a 20-30% water change on my 10 gallon every week and that keeps parameters pretty good.
