Betta fish do not enjoy currents that come from filters. You could put in a filter but I would recommend not to. Also, Heaters are unnecessary as long as you keep the water 70-80 degrees.

It is best that all fish have a filter besides Betta fish. Betta fish don't need filters cause the filter pushes them over with their big fins.

Can you put a betta fish in a vase?

Can you? Yes. Should you? No. They're tropical fish that need heaters (between 78 and 82 degrees F) and gentle filters to be healthy, and in too small of a tank, ammonia will build up and burn them. And as surface breathers, having only a small opening at the top can cause problems, if it were blocked, they could suffocate.
