You definitely need a heater and a thermometer for one! Thats rreally more important than any decoratin. Other than that, I would add some more plants/decorations that are taller so your betta can feel secure swimming higher in his tank :D And is the filter baffled? Make sure the current is not too strong.

As for cleaning, I do about a 25-30% water change weekly. That seems to be the general if the tank is cycled.

Also, a water test kit may be helpful in ensuring water paramaters are consistant (Sp?)

I have a thermometer and will be getting more plants shortly. I will also baffle the filter.
I also have a water test kit.
