Do Betta Fish die in the winter if you don't install a heater?

Yes. They are tropical fish. In cold temperatures they become lethargic and can't digest their food properly. Bettas should be kept in stable filtered, heated tanks, heated

Why don't oceans freeze over in the Winter?

What property of water allows fish in a lake to survive winters freezing temperatures?
