Te filter will be find just get a syrofoam cup or craft mesh and create somthing that will baffle the flow of water. As for the heater you could get one at petco/petsmart or even wally world. Just get one thats for 10 gallon tanks. I have one from there thats non-adjustable but is set to 78 degrees. It's made of stone and "unbreakable" and so far I have yet to break it :P

Feel free to message me any questions, I'll try to help the best I can!

Though 78 degrees is low for a betta if I'm not mistaken...

Yeah its the low end but its not bad. The "sweet spot" for temp is 78-82. This is the heater http://www.walmart.com/ip/Tetra-Heater-1-ct/10291808

I have a nerite snail for each betta... All three bettas attack anything else. Had to rehome Cory cats and they ate all the shrimp I put in within an hour... Apparently I have very aggressive fish. They like to watch the nerites but don't bite the eyes off like they did to the gold mystery snail...
