Yes. A 25w will do fine since Betta's should be kept between 76-80. I keep mine at 79

answer 2
Bettas are tropical fish. You should keep the water between 78-80 degrees. So yes you should use a heater. This is a convenient area for a heater hidden in the filter compartment. It fits typical 25 or 50w heaters.

answer 3
If you're in a warm environment, I would say No. My apt tends to get a bit cold so I put one in the tank to insure that my beta will be in warm water. The heater can be hidden in the back along with the circulation pump and filter.

No, replacements are needed with this aquarium. It comes with all the filtration media you need, including a porous foam block with convenient handle, activated carbon and BioMax bio rings. The pump and filtration system are conveniently located in a separate chamber at one end of the aquarium to make cleaning and maintenance as simple as possible.
