You may want to buy a thermometer so you can make sure the water is between 78 and 80F. And perhaps a heater as well to ensure that the temperature remains stable - big changes in temperature are not good for your fish

In a one gallon bowl, you should actually be doing more than one water change per week...

And never use soap to clean anything of a fish! Soap is toxic, even if you rinse out well there is still a risk...

Just using hot water and vinegar works well for cleaning.

Also, breeding bettas is a lot of hard work that requires a lot of dedication and studying! You can't simply throw a female and male in a bowl-it's a very difficult proccess. So I suggest you read a lot before you do consider it.

He's WAY too old to breed. Please do adequate research before attemtping it.

Haha my boyfriend did that by accident... I was like "Dude, look at the dates first. Some of these fish you're commenting on? Their dead." He was like "Wow, fail on my part."
I don't know why they bumped this one, it's over 2 years old! You'd have to go to the very beginning of the posts...
