I usually put 1tsp per gallon..I would only put 2tsp in the tank. If you don't have a heater already I highly suggest you get one.. betta tanks should be 76-82*F year round.

I would recommend a topfin 25 watt heater for that tank. You could also get a marineland stealth 10 watt or a visitherm heater.. all are great heaters.

Would the Hydor Mini Aquarium Heater be good for my betta fish tank?

The hydor mini will work but its not adjustable and won't raise the temp very high. I would advise to spend the few extra bucks and get the adjustable heater.

You put the salt in the tank for 10 days. Don't add any more unless you do a water change.. for instance if you do a 50% water change you just removed half of the original amount of salt you put in so you would need to add that back to the tank.
