Water changes for a cycled, filtered 5g tank with 1 male betta?

I have a 5g tank that has no use right now. I'm planning on dividing it soon, but for now, what type of water changes would I be doing with a cycled, filtered 5g tank with only 1 male betta?

In a 5gal filtered tank with an established nitrogen cycle-50% weekly with vacuum should maintain water quality-provided that you don't overfeed and remove any uneaten food within a reasonable time....

Filter media needs a swish/rinse in the bucket of old tank water with a water change a couple of times a month.
