Default Changing Water in Pumilio Film Canister?

I have a pumilio tad being parent raised in a black film canister. Do I need to change the water in the film canister. There seems to be some debris on the bottom of the canister. Many thanks for any help.

No water changes are necessary other than topping off any evaporated water over time. That crud in the bottom will not cause a problem.

I have noticed if you overfill the canisters every couple of days to change out some of the water the froglets develop bigger and healthier.

I use a pump spayer with low pressure to go thru the tanks and overfill the broms and canisters manually every few days and I make sure the misting system overfills them on a regular basis also.

I double what paul says. All water holding canisters and plants get flushed minimum once a week. This is basically spraying the plant until it overflows, and keep it overflowing for 30 seconds to a minute.
