Yes you will NEED another moss ball (lol) =D the kk is perfect lots of people use them. and any internal filter would probably be good. i dont really like the tetra whisper 3i because it works by air pump and you cant cycle it because it has no bio media, only cartridge that you have to throw out every month. im sure theres other small filters out there

Not sure what your budget is...

But at walmart there is a 10 gal starter kit- glass tank, filter & hood with light for $30.

You can get this adjustable heater with a thermostat on sale for $15! I have this heater and it works great and I LOVE the price!! http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00...w_bottom_links

I know what you mean about the betta bug...got bit bad myself...1 and half yrs ago, I got my dtr a betta in a 2.5gmini bow. That was it...now I have about 20 bettas (had tropical fish most my life, but never a betta!) and many are from Thailand. I have 2 sororities and four Kritter Keepers that are permanent homes for bettas. I use sponge filters but easier for me since I hooked them up to same air filter. I use the Petco submersible filter because its reliable, available locally, and adjustable. Currently my keepers get sunlight from a window part of day, which seems enough for floating plants such as dwarf water lettuce, Asian bogmoss, salvia, and Amazon frogbit, and duckweed. I plan to attach a 4ft shoplight above the keepers so they can have more aquatic plants since bettas seem to love a home with lots of real plants, just like me!
Anyway, I find that glassware and candle cups and holders make good and cheap homes for bettas.
