Aww what a cutie. I'm sure he is very happy!!

Like I said, you should probably need two water changes per week- 1 50% change & 1 100% change. Unless of course your ammonia level requires an additional change.

I think he is okay he swimming around so i guess he is fine ,what are the symptoms if he were to go into shock.Now that i have this ammonia tester how often do you think i should test his water, and do you think it's okay to rinse off the gravel that i had in his bowl and put it in his new tank.

I wasn't sure myself so I looked it up. Here's a discussion on temperature shock symptoms... If he were shocked he would show signs immediately, so don't worry. Based on that video, he is perfectly fine! http://www.aquariumadvice.com/forums...ck-113635.html

I would test your ammonia in between changes. Yes, you can rinse your gravel & add it to the new tank.

I would test daily so you can get a feel for how often and how much you need to change the water in your tank.

I know everyone uses OFL's 1 50% and 1 100% guidelines, but I always feel each tank is different and you should depend on your test kits to make up your own schedule.

If your betta had shock it would probably be laying on the bottom, breathing very heavily and showing visible signs of stress. I have never had a betta go into shock and I am pretty slack with acclimatising. Most healthy bettas should be able to deal with a small difference in temperature and pH.
