Too many and you loose beneficial bacteria. Also I would say divided on this site. In fact through observation it's alway will differ.

Just for future reference, the vast majority of beneficial bacteria is on surfaces such as gravel, decorations, and mostly in the filter. Very little is in the water, so it hardly effects the bacteria.

The amount of nitrifying bacteria that live in the water is miniscule.

from what ive ready on several different sites they recommend weekly water changes at least for tanks at least 5 gallons or larger for the one gallon tanks they recommend twice a week i dont think some people realize the danger to the fish that the ammonia and toxicity of the water from the fish's own waste and uneaten food and other factors that contribute to the quality of the water not being what it should be. my betta has also suffered from minor fin loss and has alread regrown them because ive been so diligent about water changes and paying attention to him and his appearance and any changes... guess thats part of me bein a mommy lol
