I wouldn't think that a heater for your little half gallon during water changes would be necessary; unless you plan on having him stay over night (at least that would be when I'd get one).

I hope that helped. This was only in reply to your other quote. I haven't read the rest of the forum yet, though.

bettas need a temp of 76-82 with a preference of like 78-80 at least i think i have those numbers right but i know that anything below 75 is not good. the heater is almost always a must to keep the temp from fluctuating too much and stressing the fish out. also why you should have a thermometer in the tank.

he shouldn't, in fact adding more especially silk plant wise or even live plant wise I think would make him very happy as it would give him some place to rest.
