Betta Care Question

I have a 1.5 gallon tank and it is always at a constant 80 degrees, do I still need a heater? And, my tank has a filter, so when should I do water changes?

Hello and welcome to the forum. If your water stays at a constant 80 degrees, I don't think you need a heater.A 1.5 gallon tank needs to be changed at least once a week.

Nope no heater, a complete water change every week is a must though.

That seems like an awful small tank to me. If you can, you might want to invest in a bigger tank. I have a 10 gallon tank and he really loves it.
Here's my tank set up.

Thanks for the help! Yes, I know it is small, but that is all I have space for right now. Once I can I want to upgrade to like a 5 or 10 gallon. Oh, and should the water change be complete, are around 50%?

I have one in a 1.5 gallon and it will be fine as long as you do frequent water changes. Once or twice a week would be good.

If you have a filter its prly cycled, so 25% once a week if it is cycled.
