when its dirty
reach in a scoop up water, FROM THE TANK put in bowl or something
take fish and put in bowl
fill up tank
take bowl and set in tank with fish in bowl
when its been long enough let fish out
the change of water temp could kill it. thats why you use the bowl.

Invest in a small siphon. Siphons let you suck up dirt and left over food from the gravel as well as help you to make your water changes. You can get them at local petstores as low as $ 7.
Make sure to use a water conditioner when adding in fresh water.

If the tank isn’t cycled, having a filter in the tank won’t make much of a difference. Just take out the filter, and clean out the tank twice a week. If you’re busy, you can stick to once a week cleanings but not for the whole time.
To clean the tank, gently scoop the fish out of the tank using a bowl or container that can float, it’s less stressful than using a net.
Cover it to prevent the fish from jumping out and if possible, place it somewhere dark so it’ll be more calm.
Then pour out the old water, rinse everything in hot water and put everything back. You can rearrange the decor or change it every now and then so that the betta will be more stimulated.
Then float the container with the betta in the tank for a while. Throw out a bit of the old water, and put in a bit of the new water, go and walk around a bit, come back, repeat. Finally, you can let the betta swim out of the container and you can both do a happy dance.
EDIT! I forgot, you can also do 1 partial water change and 1 full water change a week.
