Got a new tank question on cleaning it

So I took your advice here and got a bigger 2.5 gallon tank for my betta and a heater and filter and I was wondering how often and how should I go about cleaning it

Do two 50% changes per week, siphoning the gravel for one of them.

Ok that sounds manageable and when I replace the 50% water should I put the treating chemicals in it before I add it to the tank or after?

Put it in the water that you're going to put in the tank. That way it gets to removing the chlorine and such before it gets to your fish.
