Are heaters necessary for bettas? My female started acting really anxious and hiding in her ship for hours. I don't know what else it could be.

Yes they are. Bettas are tropical fish and the water in your tank can easily go up and down. Using your home's air temp is not a reliable way to keep your tank at the right condition. They make heaters specifically for the set ups people commonly do for betta tanks and it targets their comfort zone.

My tanks have heaters but I haven't used them all summer. I'll be turning them on soon because the nights are starting to get colder. Get a thermometer so you will know when they get too hot (over 84) or too cold (under 76).
