I need some basic tips for my new fishy :)

Hi! I'm a newbie fish caretaker, although I did have some bettas when I was very little (8) but my mom was the person tho took care of everything. I have a basic Blue betta named Dexter. I got a VERY small tank (which Im upgrading tomorrow) it is a 1 gallon tank, and it doesnt have a heater or filter. I found out a few days ago that Betta need warm water, so ive been keeping my room warm, and I have been insulating the outside of his tank until I can go to Walmart tomorrow and get the 5- gallon. (and a heater). I just need some basic tips and/or tricks to make sure my new fishy friend lives a long happy life :)

Welcome to the forum and the hobby! Bettas are a lot of fun to keep. Most people find it hard to stop at one.

If you want some general information on bettas, try looking at the top of the forum for threads called "stickies." They have a lot of great information. Those threads should give you the general information and tips for betta keeping. It sounds like you are doing a great job right now, tho. You're going to get a good sized tank and a heater. Clean, warm water is the best thing you can do for a betta.
