How many Water Changes should I do for a Un-filtered 5 gallon tank?

I'm sure this has been asked before, so I am sorry for asking it again. But, how many water changes should I do in a Un-Filtered 5 gallon tank? I have read that just 1-50% and 1-100% water change a week is good. But then other people have told me that 1-50% and 1-100% is a lot, even for an Un-filtered tank.
In the tank I have just my one Betta. There are no live plants. So, How many Water changes should I do?

On a 5gal unfiltered without live plants...I would recommend twice weekly 50%....1-50% water only and 1-50% that include substrate cleaning with a 100% every month.....to maintain water quality......
