First tank change, whats safe??

So I have a betta in a 1 gallon, unheated tank right now and I want to throw him in my new 10gallon. I'm a little curious as to how to do this safely. I know that when you buy them they come in bags and what not, but is there a certain type of bag thats safe? Or is any sandwich bag good? What would be a safe way to acclimatize him from tank to tank??

Thanks all,
Roo

Any food safe (sandwich bags included) bag or plastic container (tupperware) will work. Just make sure the container floats. Fill it part way with some water from the old tank and float it with the fish in the new tank. Every 10-15 mins take a little of the water out of the container and add the new aquarium water.

After about 45 mins-1 hour it should be safe to release the fish into the tank.
