it's decided!!!! Little Freud is getting a 2.5 gallon tank today with some plants! :D

Because i feel like moving him back and forth is stressing him out :( And i like to do two 100% water change each week even with a filter to make sure there's not bad bacteria or parasites etc. I just feel like prevention is better than medication :S

Get yourself a 2.5g mop bucket, a cheap one and rinse with hot water. I have four 1.5g tanks and 1g tank I need to change in my living room. What I do is make the water in my bucket, take out my fish in a cup, take the tank to the bathroom and clean it out with running water. I then drain the tank of the running water, put the tank back and add water to it from the bucket with a large cup just for the tanks. Then I put my boy back. It's much easier and I have my big cup sitting in the bucket and stored away until next time. Granted I have to lug the bucket around a lot on Saturday, as that's when I change all betta tanks and the tropicals!

If your tank is filtered there is no need to take the fish (in tanks 3 gallons up). You can simply siphon about half of the water out, clean the filter and replace with dechlorinated water.
