When I got the fish about a month ago, I went in to Pets Unlimited, they told me all I needed was the small tank/started kit. No mention of heat, or filter unit. Tank as 3 decorative stones, and the smaller pebbles in the middle of the tank base. with a pale background and bottom decoration that can be removed.
I will try to get pictures up when I get home if the fish is still alive.
