A lot of people on here will full out attack you about a 1 gal tank size (they can be jerks, fersher :/) but honestly, if you care about your betta and clean your tank well and do frequent water changes, I think they can live a happy life.
Mine lives in a 1.5 gal but had a 1 gal critter carrier for a while (I didnt have the moeny at the time for anything else), and he was fine.
While a 2+ gal is best and great, it isnt horrible to keep them in a 1+ as long as it is VERY clean and frequently changed. Dont let them scare you if you know, truly, that you're doing a good job and are keeping it nice.
(I got hell for a 1.5 for the longest time. People kept telling me I was "awful". Not everyone can afford a big tank, but when there's a caring owner, I think its fine :/// )
I couldn't agree more. (:
