Question Heater in a bowl?

Hello!! I am new here. I just bought two bettas, Freddy and Neddy. both are in a one gallon bowl. i was wondering if i could put a small heater in the bowl? money is kind of tight right now, and hubby doesnt want to spend a lot on them. any suggestions are great!

Do not keep them in the same bowl, you will have dead fish and hurt fish left. Hydor makes a mini heater that is fairly inexpensive and works well for gallon containers.

Are they together? Bettas are solitary fish and will fight to the death. I wouldn't heat a jar under 2 gallons.

I agree with everyone else. Two males should not be put together.

would it be safe to put a little heater in? or would they get too hot? in the summer i keep it 73 degrees in our apartment and in the winter around 70. i'm afraid they are going to get too cold. :(
