Arrow When to upgrade?

as some of you may know i bought a small blue betta 5 days ago now i named Bluey because he is blue and because he looked blue in his very dirty cup. (Heres the thread http://www.bettafish.com/showthread.php?t=110364 ) he is very small, hes not fully groan and he is skinny.

He is currently in a 1 gallon unfiltered but heated tank because i had no where else for him and he is soo small i thought it would be better for him. he eats fine and swims around a lot now. still sit at the bottom from time to time to rest I assume. My plan for him is to get another 10 gallon and divide it and put him on the side that has no filter. when can i do this? should i let him grow more in the 1 gallon or can i upgrade anytime? I want to buy the tank tomorrow cause i will have the money but it doesnt mean i have to set it up right away?

You can move as soon as possible if he likes some rest floating Betta log it is perfect some live food will help grow faster if you keep a young Betta in to small it will stunt growth which reduce lifespan.

I'd give him maybe a couple weeks to ensure he is healthy, then move him in! good luck!
