Better care

I have a male betta fish his name is Tiki and he is blue red and a little brighter red on the fins he has long fins and they are not torn he is in about a half gallon bowl with distilled water and he seems to like it and I only have to clean about every 10 days and that sounds like a lot but it's not to me and I feed him flakes and pellets and I am going to get him some frozen brine shrimp next week I think and he eats fine and I have gravel on the bottom there is a rock and a shell in the bowl and the fake silk plant that I have and he still has a lot of room to swim he is probably the most pampered pet ever I mean with all the attention that he gets and I only want what is best for him. Am I doing okay? I'm really up for suggestions to get him to be more active and spread out more! Please any extra tips you have please tell them to me!

Thanks

Is there a light or heater in the tank?

I just leave my windows open for daylight lighting, and around 4-5pm I turn my lamp on. So, you should be fine as long as he has a constant temperature.

I have a lamp there and its not really on but I could start turning it on and I normally leave my bedroom light on because that is where he is, is that okay?
