Question Newbie to Betta Fish! Water Change Help plz!

Right then, this is now my fourth and I think final question! So, I will be putting my male Betta in a 10G (US) tank that has a Filter. There are so many different threads on it but none match my tank description... How much of a water change do I need to perform and how often? With the current occupants of my tank which I got for the cycling process I have been performing a weekly water change and I've been replacing 50% of the water. Is that amount ok for the male betta, bearing in mind that it is 10G (US) and it also has a filter. Thanks in advance for any help!

Thanks! Can't believe that some people believe these are easy fish to keep, to be honest they're all difficult in their own little way!!! lol

I know what you mean, I mentioned bettas with some co-workers yesterday, and they said oh, they're the easy fish. I just laughed and brought out a picture of my boy after a fit of tail biting.
Of course they didn't know how OMG wow they can look with proper care.
