Question water changes need HELP

Ok so my betta is in a 2.5 gallon heated AND filtered tank! And i was wondering if a 75% water change every 3 days would be sufficient?

I have a filtered 2.5 gallon and I will do a water change every 6-7 days of 50-75% of water.
Just keep an eye on the water and make sure its not dirty and cloudy. If it is dirty, you can do a water change sooner.

A clean fish tank is always good.

I am so happy to hear that becuase on one of my other posts someone said i have to do a full water change every 3 days and i was thinking " Yikes! Wouldnt the betta need some of his old water too and isnt that a bit much?" and this shocked me a little more because the fish guy said 25% once a week but i was thinkng 50% once a week. But of course i understand where that person is coming from i mean who wants a sick betta? THANK YOU!!
