I am planning to get a betta of my OWN and I want it to live long. I dont think I will need a heater because my family lives in AZ and it usually is atleast 99degrees in spring, summer, and fall. It can also fall to 60degrees in the winter (uasually). I also need to know what the bettas like to have in thier tank such as plants, rocks ect. Will bettas do good in 1 gallon bowls or will I need to have it be kept in a 2-2.5 gallon bowl instead? PLEASE COMMENT!
