All right I searched around online and got this: if ammonia and nitrite levels are greater than 0.25ppm, do a 50% water change.
Can anyone verify this information? I think it sounds pretty solid :)

Hey Mar. Good luck with the new tank and Betta.

This thread should stay open for continued conversation. It's a great New fish keeper thread!!

Thank You Frankiefire for posting very sound advice!! Your contributions to this thread are appreciated!
If you have a tank that is cycled with a filter you don't tear it down and clean it the way you would a betta tank without a filter. Those need 2x weekly water changes and full clean outs weekly I believe. Your 5 gallon can be maintained with vacuuming debris from the bottom with your baster, rinsing the filter pad in old tank or de-chlor water if you wish to use it again. Putting the new filter pad into the tank for a week before replacement of the old dirty one is a great way to build up some good bacteria on it.

If that tank is plastic be very careful with scrubbies etc as they can leave marks too when cleaning algae off for example.
