Hi,and welcome to the world of bettas. I personally take my bettas out and do a 100 percent water change, but some people do 10 to 75 percent water changes. If its a 1 to 5 gallon tank I would take the betta out and put he/she in the container it came in. If your putting tap water in the tank you need to put conditioner in it and let it sit for 10 to 15 minutes.

I usually do 25% a day or every other day. I just leave the betta in there... scoop out some water... let it settle. Slowly pour the new water in and then give him a bloodworm for being such a good boy. Then a 100% a week.
