Well bettas should never really be in water below 76, so I would say get a heater. In small tanks especially the water temperature fluctuates a lot more so it is best to have a heater to keep in steady and safe, in my opinion.

I don't think any thing less than 75-76 is okay, and I definitely would not recommend anything like 67 degrees, that is ten degrees too cold.

Agreed, but mini heaters aren't exactly widely available in the UK. The market for small tanks is very small and tanks smaller than 5 gallons (20 litres) are hard to come by.

Well, the OP lives in Indiana, according to their info, so I think they won't have a problem.
