1.5g water changes

So, I have my girl betta, Berry, in my 1.5 gallon tank, and she's been in there for about a month or 2... anyway, I've been changing the water every 2 days, and just wanted to double check to make sure it was alright?

And, I really wish I could get a larger tank for her, but I can't. Since I already have 1 10g tank with Pepper and the 4 corys, and 2 hamsters, there isn't much room left in my bedroom. I have Berry's tank in the corner of my desk, which I like because I can watch her a lot. So anyway, if I make sure the water is heated safely, and I do a complete water change every 2 days, is this okay? I mean, I've seen much worse conditions, so your opinion?

Thank you :)

So long as you keep the water at an ideal temperature it sounds fine. I have mine in a 1.5g too but I will be getting him a bigger one next time i go to walmart or the LPS.

The Minibow aquariums don't take up much space at all, and they're not too expensive. I use one for my betta at work.

1.5 gallons isn't that bad, especially since you're cleaning it regularly. Is it heated too?

I don't have a heater now, because of the summer weather, but as it will get colder soon, I will get a heater.
