Lowest maintenance tank?

Hi, just wanted to know what is the lowest maintenance tank that I could have. Not too big, maybe 15g max. Would be good to know if I become very busy.

20 long is very popular and more species options. I have a 29 that has the same footprint but taller.

I can deal with 3- 5 gallon buckets for water changes without feeling overwhelmed.

You could look into Walstad method. Low stocking will make the tank easier to care for. Semi and aquatic plants help. The biggest tank possible will help. Bigger tanks are more stable.
10 gallon planted Least Killifish/Assassin Snail
20 gallon planted Guppy/Assassin snail tank
I use Guppy Grass for the tank and Pothos above.

Go as big as possible, add very few fish and plant it heavily.
