Mine don't have heaters or fiters and they have done very well.They don't get sick any more often than bettas who are in heated, filtered tanks do.

Personally i don't think they *need* filters and heaters, i think they would prefer it, but like everything else alive, they will become accoustom to anything that they are in for a long time (not meaning like ice water) i think about 70 degrees or room temp, would be fine. Just make sure to check on them when you walk by. again, when a fish isnt happy there will be signs.

It has been a couple days and all the fish seem better. The danio and the beta are together, but the beta hasn't chased the danio and both are swimming and active (the danio is pretty hyper sometimes). The tetra is by itself and swims around occasionally, i am sure it is lonely but it has it's own happy little bowl. So, separating them seems to be working so far. Either way, this is also great experience for when we have a large tank someday. Thanks again to everyone who helped!

Good! does the tank with the tetra big enough to get one or two more? it might be better to get 3 tetras in a bowl if the Danio and beta are good together

get an account on craifslist and put the fish on there. You can keep the bettas but NOT the others.

put the danio and the tetra in a bowl away from the betta. they are more delacate (although danios are pretty hardy). They can't live a full or happy life like that.

Bowls are worse cuz they dont really have much surface area.
