They thrive better in warmer water especially during the cold season. The betta my dad kept lived for approx 1-2 years while mine live up to 3-5 years so far in a 5 gallon tank with heater and filter. Just my experience since I kept them for quite a long time now, but entirely up to you.

    I don't think snail will help with a clean up in the vase. My betta killed pest snail and ate them probably and even mystery snails so becareful if anything.

    Update time!
    So i ended up using an old critter keeper and crammed it full of salvinia and java moss. I also have a stem of pothos and one Indian almond leaf. And since theres going to be a pair going in here i have a pvc pipe and a net pot that refuses to sink, but they could just use that to rest on. Ill also be picking up a 10w heater

    Another update!

    Went and got a tiny 10 watt heater and moved the tank to an outlet which also is in direct sunlight which will help grow the pothos and some algae which will both help filtration. I also talked to frank from franks bettas about water changes and ill be doing 50% once a week, ill get a picture tomorrow because its dark now and you cant really see it
