Well, can I still use a filter in an uncycled tank? They get mad because they figured they got enough stuff for the fish, even though I'm paying for it all.

Sure, you can use a filter. It'll help keep the water clean.

Some Betta's are happier in smaller tanks.
That I've proven over and over to myself with some of my betta's...
I don't see anywhere The size of your new tank, But I assume it's a 5 or 10 gallon?
Several of my Betta's I had to slowly acclimate them to a bigger tank otherwise they'd stay at the bottom corner and never move or eat....

you can cycle a small tank using only gravel, thats what I did with my 1 gallon tanks...
Also pretty much all my Betta's love a bubble wall, They love playing into it.....not to fast of a flow tho...

Cycling a tank isn't really important if you do frequent water changes...
I also find my betta's are happier and more active with higher temps of 80......

I have experimentent with communities of betta's and all in all I find Betta's are happier on average alone and in smaller tanks..... Some may disagree with me, But this has been my over all experiance...

I think they can be happy in either one. I think what they are most happy with is clean water.
