Question Which is most important for a betta?

Which of these three things is most important to you for a betta? A heater, a filter or the size of the tank? Rank them in order of importance to you please. I'm just curious about this. :)

I personally like to place it as: tank size, heater, filter.
And none of it means a wit if the water is dirty as sin.

But more thoroughly I'd say: Clean water, proper food, tank size, heater, light, decorations/entertainment for fish and then filter.

Depends on the average temp of water, whether there is a light (help warm atank) and water changes...

If we add clean water to the list, I'd say clean water first. I'm not sure whether I'd put tank size or heater next. Emmnemms, I agree with you on the water temp.I don't have heaters in any of mine except one but I DO worry that it may still be too cool for them in an upstairs room that stays pretty warm. The bigger the tank, the easier it is to maintain water quality.
