Theyre cute little things, arent they?
Youll be fine, and so will they. Just do what you can for now.
If it seems really really pressing, you can go an get a large bucket (never used) or better yet a sterilite/rubbermaid container and put a betta in there until you get a new tank or another tank.
You need heaters for both, though. Also, to cover it, use seran wrap and punch holes into it.
Theyre usually about $1.50 a gallon, so get a 5 gallon, or heck, even two, and the fish will be happy :)
Many members use this as an alternative to tanks when in a pinch.
