Same with me, with my first Betta, Flake he was in a 1/5 gallon bowl & even though I changed the water once a week [which is what i thought was enough at the time] the change since he has been put in his 5 gallon is amazing!
; You don't have
to put your fish in a 10 gal. 5 gal [about 18/19 litres] is fine & even a 3 litre. As long as you have a filter, feed him well & still do weekly water changes he will do fine!
Just dont forget if you've had him for a while he might just be starting to show some signs of old age.
