It's an idea if you wanted to try something.. if not, then it's still a nice decoration for your place!

Mind if I ask where you got your "thinker" statue in the middle? I am loving it! Awesome tank!

Thank you for the suggestion and for your comments! Do shrimp need a heater? Also, I've heard they are MORE sensitive then fish to PH levels, chemicals, etc. I'm just so much of a noob with water conditions that I feel nervous putting anything in there.

Do you know of anything that would be easy and wouldn't require a heater? I've thought of a mystery snail, but I know those are pretty messy. I sort of have a fear of fires and heaters exploding, so am trying to stay coldwater. :(

Outside of a goldfish which would eventually grow too big to stay in a 10G and snails, freshwater critters need heaters. It's a shame not to get a betta for such a beautiful tank, and the filter you chose is perfect for them.

Depending on where you live you could probably get away with a very low wattage heater. A 50 watt heater can easily heat ten gallons to the temperature you need, and a heater that small really presents no danger at all. Any heater you get now has a safety shutoff built in, but even if that should fail fire and/or exploding heaters is not really a risk.
As far as water conditions, if it's filtered and you add a water conditioner/dechlorinator it should be fine for a betta. They're not fussy about pH and such.
