Are you supposed to use a formula specifically for bettas? I thought that was a marketing ploy... I just use Prime.

A little theory, will boiling some water be safe for the fish, for humans boiled water is safer for us than drinking straight from the tap so surely it should be safe for fish too?

Boiling water kills parasites and bacteria that could be harmful to us, that why its safer. It probably won't do much unless you have issues with your fish constantly getting sick.

I just had an idea about putting my new betta in the 4 gallon and Clark Gable in the 12 gallon, in a breeder trap. I tested the 4 gallon and these are the readings

Ammonia - 0 - 0.25 can't really tell the different
Nitrites - 0
Nitrates - 10

Obviously I can't do a water change so is it still OK to put him in there are these levels too high?

Why can't you do a water change? But yes, those levels are safe.
Goal levels:
Ammonia: 0
Nitrites: 0
Nitrates: less than 40

So, you're good.
