50% daily water changes for the first week, every 2nd day during the 2nd week, every third day during the third week and once a week after that (more if needed, obviously...I do 2x weekly personally) is the recommended schedule from ADA themselves. Barr recommends daily for the first month or so. Cycle time varies depending on media seeded, plant mass, oxygen levels, circulation, temperature, etc.
