Keeper to Be

Aright guys, I can't really call myself a Betta Keeper yet, because I don't have a Betta to... well, keep. My mother insists on not buyng a heater, but I'm probably just going to go buy one myself, along with a three-gallon tank. What do you guys think in terms of filters? Yay or nay?

Filters aren't needed for anything under 5 gallons at all, since tanks that small can be hard to cycle.
Just do your water changes and you shall be fine :D

Thanks to you too! I'm going to set up the tank today, and get the fish tomorrow.

Welcome and good luck picking out your new fishy friend.

You'll def. need a heater where you live and you can find 25w submersible heaters fairly cheaply online.
