Whoo- healed up fast! And in response to your other question, I have searched extensively but unsuccessfully for something to heat a bowl 1g or smaller. I have however heard rave reviews from betta experts about those mini-bows, though. They are relatively cheap, come as a kit with all the other supplies (maybe not a heater, tho) in lots of cute colors. Heck, if you got the 5 gallon you could probably get away with cleaning every 2 weeks! They cost maybe $15 more than the 2.5 gallon but time is money these days .

Looks like it was just rips after all :)

I'd recommend getting at least a 2.5 gallon tank with a heater. I love the visi-therm stealth or deluxe models myself. If you choose to go to a 5 gallon (which I strongly recommend) cycling the tank will make maintenance much easier on you. A cycled 5 gallon only needs 20% water changes a week. Here's a link on cycling that I strongly suggest that you read even if only to get a better understanding on what is going on in your water:
