sorry if this is rude, but i am just going to flat out say it

your tank is WAY to small for dividing, let done one betta fish. They are living in their own poop for goodness sake! Thats like us living in a closet for our whole life. Also, a heater will benefit them greatly.

I think proper waters changes defenitely signal good care.
Maybe it is just me, but I dont quite think you can spoil a betta.

I dont even think my betta is spoiled, and she lives in a 10 gal heated tank, gets frozen bloodworms once a week... if she were in the wild she would have miles of water to swim through so 10 gallons IMO isnt even spoiling.

Listen, im tired of being told that I am not a goid betta owner, my bettas are fine, I am proud of myself fir taking such good care of them, so.i dont really care what anyone says. My bettas are my babies. At least I spoil then with nloodworms every once in awhile, at least I clean the tank weekly and feed them twice a day. At least I love them, like I would love a dog. So all of you pretige amazing betta caretakers who have 2000 gallon tanks, congrats. But I am a happy go lucky owner with mine. At least I have a passion for bettas. I am tired of getting corrected. Good day to you all.

You really should invest in a water test kit at a minimum. It's fine if you want to keep your two fish in that tank as no one can change your opinion on that. However, you cannot see ammonia and you cannot see nitrite and only doing water changes once a week is not going to be enough on a tank that size.

Constant exposure to a level of ammonia only .25ppm can cause all sorts of issues that may not be apparent at first but can result in premature death or ailments such as fin rot.

So please do at least purchase a liquid test kit for ammonia. They are pretty cheap and water quality is so so important to the health of any fish.

no. you can get water conditioner like sea chem prime that detoxifies ammonia, but doesnt remove it. you have to redose it every 48 hours if your tank isnt cycled.. It does remove nitrite & nitrate I believe.
