And this isn't a VT, but it has some other body areas which might be helpful:

I had that model of filter on my ten gallon for a long time, the bio-fiber does stay in the filter. That's a good starting off filter IMO :)
I think I might've gotten some posts confused,sorry for the confusion about tank size and all that. I typically do a 10-20% water change on my 10gal every week, for your uncycled tank I'd say maybe do 30% of it every 2-3 days (since you have just the one betta in there?). Anyone else have input on that?
If you haven't got one and can get one, a gravel vacuum can make changing water a lot easier, as well as helping clean waste out of the gravel. They sell them at walmart for around $10.

If you have a store nearby, many will test your water for free for you.

Hope you get everything sorted. :)
