Unfortunately, that is to small for your betta. They need at least 2.5 gallons. You will need to perform 100% daily water changes to keep it clean.

You guys should remember the 2.5 gallon preaching on this forums isn't for space requirements, it's because most people can't take care of a smaller tank properly, with it's daily water changes.

So, as long as it's well cared for, I think it'll be ok.

How's the temperature looking, though? 78-80 degrees is ideal, and you'd need to get a 2.5gallon to be able to heat it properly.

Cute tank, though, he seems pretty happy.

Hehe, it's pretty cute! I like the palm trees. Though it does look a bit small. Do be careful that those plants aren't sharp enough to tear his fins.

Very pretty betta!! I've always felt that 1 gallon should be the minimum, as long as the tank is properly taken care of.

Thats what i had read from a lot of different places... Just didn't take into account how to do water changes while at work... Maybe i'll just go and get a 2.5 gallon filter tank....

something like this
