Welcome to the forum.....

In a 1gal unfiltered tank-water changes twice weekly...1-50% and 1-100% should maintain water quality

If the tank has a filter-twice weekly 50%...1-50% water only and 1-50% to include the substrate by vacuum or stir and dip method

When making water changes try and keep the water temp within a couple of degrees between new and old water and Always use dechlorinator with any water added to the tank-dose for the full volume of the tank even with partial changes as a general rule....

You want to try and maintain a somewhat stable water temp in the 76-80F range.....

Nutrition-a good quality varied diet fed in small frequent meals is best....

Look forward to seeing pic and hearing more about you and your sons Betta adventures....great hobby to share with your child....
