Depending on how warm it is you can even house a betta in a cleaned out 1 gallon pickle jar. But I reccomend at least a 5 gallon tank. A good rule is...if it's too small to heat it's too small to house a betta. 2 gallons is the smallest container that can be heated.

Oh you'll need a lid so be sure the tank has one :)

Other than the lid like Vampire mentioned (and I think those haweye aquariums come with a lid), you're all set! Can't wait to see it all set up.

You could get marimo (live moss), I find that helped with the algae levels in my tanks

some gravel for the bottom of the tank?

For doing water changes you should get a gravel vacuum.This enables you to suck up all the crud that sinks to the bottom of the tank when you are doing water changes (these are cheap to buy).Something that is not neccesary but useful is a bucket that you only use for fish tank use.This saves the worry of using a bucket that may have nasty chemicals in from its other uses (cleaning the car etc).

Good luck with your fish,Im sure your love it! (BTW- Thanks for asking about fish care before buying one)
