New Betta, 1st time owner

So i went to pet smart. Never had fish before my first time. I've been reading this website for the past 3 weeks. I go to pet smart and buy a betta tell the worker i have no tank. Just to see how much they care i act like i don't have alot $$$$$. They recommend the 1/2 gallon marina betta kit and they said i don't need a filter or heater. I would have went for it but after reading the topics from i wouldn't do it. All they wanted was for me to buy the fish and make a couple bucks..NOt saying all pet smarts stores are like that.

Here's my tank with my new betta, thanks for the great website and all the info.

not the best pics from my phone

Dude. I can't begin to tell you how much trouble you have saved yourself simply by doing some flipping research before buying! Is that a Tetra Water Wonders 5.5g tank? I have one and I love it... did you know you can unscrew the incandescent bulb and switch it for a compact fluorescent bulb if you want to try some low-light plants?
