betta fish tank??

heres what im going to get my betta:
a 1 gallon tank kit that comes with:
a filter,a air pump,and a light on the top.
i got her this separately:
pebbles for bottom of tank, fake floating water lilly, fake plant.

so all together:
1 gallon tank
filter
air pump
pebbles for bottom of tank
fake floating water lilly
fake plant
built in light at top of tank.

so hears my question:
is that all that i need?? is that all of the basics for her tank??

p.s. i got her food (of course)

Heater. Bettas need warmth. A small preset heater will run you about $15 at Walmart and will do fine :)

They're pretty small. It's more important that its small in watts. No more than 25 watts. Preferably upgrade to a bigger tank. You said you may want females together. A 10 gallon is the minimum for that. So if you can get a bigger tank.

I have no idea about frogs. But I know they like groups. My advice, stay away from them. LOTS of plants are great in my book. Live if you can but silk and plastic work too.

They can go together depending on the fish. But be aware it can be very difficult to feed the frogs as they have poor eyesight! Some people need to use tongs of some kind to put the food right in front of them so the other fish doesn't get it first! But some bettas will harrass the frogs too much!
