Water changes every two weeks may not be enough for a small 5 gallon tank. Even 5 gallon tanks can quickly build up toxins if water changes aren't done frequently. Since it is filtered, I would recommend doing a 25% change once per week. I personally do a 1 gallon (20%) change every 5 days. Monitor your parameters if possible.

! Too much bottom rock.

No more than an inch without real plants, any thicker and the low circulation that betta need won't be able to clear water through the gravel and you'll get bacteria in the stagnant areas that make the water bad again.
