Nope thats my tank at home. My iredsecent shark is almost 20" long and over 20 years old, and a bala shark that is 9" and a few goldfish.
About heaters I have no experience with the previous recommended heater, I prefer submersible heaters with a control knob. This way you can set it at say 78 degrees and it will stay at 78 all the time, I dont like the temp to go up and down. if you have one that gets 7 degrees warmer than the room and the room is 65 then the temp only gets to 72, a little cold for bettas, or if the room gets to 80 does the water go up to 87?
all just my opinion though. I'm sure you can find a small decent heater for under 20 bucks though.
I was looking around a little and I'm not sure if they make a heater like I'm talking about for a 1 gallon tank.
I'm also on another forum at Bettafish.com and there are alot of experts there for bettas
