Your Betta will be fine in the 1gal unfiltered tank long term if needed.....provided that you make the needed water changes, don't overfeed and remove uneaten food within a reasonable time....

In a 1gal unfiltered tank without live plants-water changes of twice weekly...1-50% and 1-100% should maintain water quality...

Be sure and try and keep the water temp within a couple of degrees between new and old with water changes

Dose the dechlorinator for the full volume of the tank even with partial water changes...

You may or may not need a heater, however, its a good idea to have one on hand....your goal is to maintain a somewhat stable water temp in the 76-80F range....

I use the preset type heater Tetra brand in my 1gal unfiltered tanks and they work great for me...depending on the room temp...the water temp will range from 76-82F

You do need a thermometer-to monitor the tank temp and the water temp of the replacement water for water changes.....

Love to see some pics......

He will to a 2.5 or 5. Probably stick with air stone. Will add heater for sure. He will still have everything in his tank plus some more places for him to hide. I'm excited about giving him a better place. :)
