Smile new tank help

i'm wanting to get a 5 or 10 gallon tank for one of my bettas. i've never had an actual fish tank before and i was wondering since bettas can live without a filter do i really NEED to get one? the betta i'm wanting to put in the bigger tank has been in a 2 gallon tank for about 3 months now and he's doing just fine. so do i really NEED to get a filter? if i do what else would i be required to get? (other than gravel and hiding spots and such)

Filters are not required, but they help the water stay cleaner.
You could always get a tank kit and the filter will be included and usually everything else you'll need except the decor/gravel.

No, I don't think they sell that brand at the pet stores. I'm sorry I couldn't be much help.
