If you have a larger tank and a gravel syphon, there would be no need to remove the fish from the tank.
You would be doing partial water changes.

Removing the fish from a smaller tank isn't too stressful for the fish. Dirty water is more stressful.

wait, you only do partial changes once a week in a half gallon? thats prly not the best idea. I would either do 100% changes every other day, or partial changes every day in a tiny tank like that

but the fish will go into shoock if i do a full water change.

so if i do a full water change i use a full cap of my betta plus it says the cap per 1/2 a gallon and i used to use half the cap because i used to do a 50%.

why wont my fish be healthy if i do a 50% every other day

isnt my fish beautiful my pictures in my proflie were taken this morning please go see my album

No, he won't go into shock. What I do is put my betta in a gladware or tupperware container with clean, dechlorinated water that I made up the night before in a gallon milk jug.Then I pour out all the old water, rinse the rocks and any plants or decorations in hot water, rinse out the bowl, then put everything back in, then pour in the clean, dechlorinated water and put the fish back in. You need to do full changes once or twice a week in a one gallon, every other day in a half gallon. If you only do 50% water changes then gunk is going to build up on the bottom pretty quickly.
