Exclamation Questions on housing baby Bettas

OK, so a friend of mine got two baby bettas from Petco and got them ONE little fish bowl for them to live. Well after i told her what they need, She handed me the bowl and said "Here have two babies, i was told just change there water and feed em"

SO now i have two babys, Heres what i have to work with. cant buy anything till fri. although i WILL got out today and get a heater, I know that's a MUST for these babys.

So can i put them in a 5.5 with no gravel, No filter and just a heater.
i was only going to put maybe just anough water to make it a 3.5 gallon, with maybe (i'll see if i can get some floating plant @LPS when i get a heater) Is there anything else im GOING to have to need for them?? or can i get away with what i have now (this is including the heater, They WILL have that) oh and i have micro pellets.

Sorry for the rambling.....

OH one more thing, Do my plants need to be Quarantined?

Thanks again!

Youu probly shud qwarentn the plants. Watet chngs shud be about 50% every day. try to get them some frozen foods like blood-worms. be sure to get lots of hiding spots and a hidey hole for each Betta. Temperature should be 80-86* F

That sounds fine until you can get more supplies. I would recommend quarantining the plant and a temperature of around 80-82 degrees :) I love babies they're adorable. Recently, I had a girl jump out of a cup that I was floating in my baby's tank to separate her for awhile, she was getting a little too aggressive. This was the worst mistake I ever made, I did not think to put a cap on the cup, because she was not a known jumper. Anyways, she jumped out of the cup and into my baby Dragonscale's tank who was only about an inch long. I didn't see it happen, but I guess he tried to fight her off and only succeeding in having himself ripped to shreds. When I saw him, I bawled my eyes out :'( Worst mistake of my llife, I wanted to give the female to my friend which was basically a death sentence... but then decided against it.
Sorry for the rant, just needed to let it out XD I wish you luck with your Two Babies!!! :)
