    i dont think you need any airation as bettas breath at the top of the tank. if it is just 1 betta you shouldnt need a undergravel filter either. as far as a heater goes you shouldn't need one if you keep your house at a comfortable temperature. If you can wear a t-shirt and be comfortable.

    oh and plants...go to a local pond supplier and they can sell you some really nice lillies. I had a friend who said that betta's live in the rice fields where he is from. I don't know how to cultivate rice but it would be cool to have a natural setup.

    - You don't need gravel so add after taste.
    - I would use floating plants.
    - No decoration needed if the roots of the floating plants hangs down.
    - I think I would keep just the betta (perhaps peacock goby)
    - No airation needed.
