Ok guys just need an honest answer

I have a 36 gallon tank i do a 5 gallon water change 3 weeks out of the month. One the fourth week i do about a 50 percent water change, is this good or should i do more than 5 gallons on the first 3 weeks. Every week before water change time i use the vac on the gravel as well. Just looking for some guidance as to wether or not im doing ok with my tank.
