Betta's need a heater set between 70*-82*.
All my tanks are kept at 80*F.

Goldies do not. Unless your house is insanely cold.

OK. So one would fit in a 10 gallon tank with filter and low heater?

Could I put any small fish in its tank?

Would a goldfish fit in a 10 gallon?
If you are talking about a goldfish, then sorry, but no.
The smallest type is fancy, and they should have a 30 gallon for one mature fancy. Additional goldfish require 10 gallons added to the 30 gallon.

Goldfish are cold water fish, they don't need heaters :) but they need powerful filters considering the amount of waste they create...

The Wiki page said 10 or 20 gallon tanks would work...so did several other sites...

wikis aren't good places to get info on pet care. you'd need to find a goldfish forum, like this one. i was always told 20 gallons for ONE fancy goldfish, plus 10 gallons for each additional goldfish. x:

VTs get upto 8 inches in length so you would probably have the same calculations..
