I will offer an opinion that you may find helpful. Do yourself and your next betta should you decide to get another a favor.
Get at LEAST a five gal tank, A small sponge filter that will need to be squezzed out during water changes. Perform these water changes twice a week using dechlorinator in new water. Get a small heater for the betta and keep temp. between 78 and 80 degrees. Feed your betta once each day no more than you actually SEE the fish eat in about 30 seconds. Try not to add very cold water to the bettas tank during water changes. If you will do these things you will have few problems. And lastly, Don't clean anything in the tank with any kind of soaps or cleaners.;-)
