In a 1gal unfiltered tank.....twice weekly water changes...1-50% and 1-100% should maintain water quality....provided that you don't overfed and uneaten food is removed within a reasonable time...

Nutrition-good quality varied diet fed in small frequent meals.....

Look forward to pic......

Yup! Your feeding habits sound good, get frozen bloodworms, he'll thank you!
Bettas do have teeth, just a fun fact, get him to bite you.
Like OFL said, one 50% and one 100% weekly. Is his tank heated?

Bloodworms are fine, they'll love em! Feed a few, they're all protein and can make em constipated...>.< anyways, in a 1g tank do a 50% and 100% WC weekly, or maybe a 25 and 100, because of the filter...
