If you have a huge tank than yes but if you have a 1/2 galon bowl I would say no. No, it is not necessary, but it is a nice thing to have. Live aquarium plants will reduce the amount of nitrates in the water, leaving it cleaner and making your betta happier. Also, the bettas like to rest on the leaves and play in the plant. Even bettas in a small bowl will appreciate the luxury of a plant- they can hide behind it, and find shade if it is too light. Bettas will NOT eat a plant- they are carnivorous and subsist on betta bites, brine shrimp, bloodworms, etc. I suggest easy to grow plants such as java fern, java moss, elodea (aka anarchis) for the bowl. Java fern will survive in low light so that may be the best for you. However, I have elodea in my fishbowl and it's doing beautifully. It also depletes the water of nutrients so that algae will not grow. If you use a plastic plant, make sure it is not sharp so it cannot hurt the betta.
Betta fish need filtered and oxygenated tanks just like other freshwater fish. Pet stores that tell you that Betta fish don't need much room or filtered tanks are either ill-informed or just plain unethical. Too much current flow isn't healthy since Bettas like slow moving water. If you are putting a plant inside a tank with your Betta (and not keeping the Betta in a vase with a plant growing out of the top and the roots growing into the Betta's space), any freshwater fish-friendly plant is good. Just make sure that it is soft so it doesn't damage the Betta's delicate and beautiful fins. Don't put a Betta in a vase with or without a plant growing above it. Also, don't keep them in tight containers or small cups. This practice is cruel and inhumane!
Well, Yes and no. Betta do like LIGHT to be able to distinguish night and day, they also need the warmth, but you can use a heater. betta fish do need light, but it is not good to keep a betta in direct sunlight as it may increase the temperature byy far too much. so just keep it in light at day, or get a lamp.
Betta fish live in rice paddies. The misconception that the Betta live in a small amount of water it's whole life has spread wide. A Betta actually only lives in small pools of water during the dry season when it is forced to by receding water levels. Also like many other fish a Betta in captivity would enjoy the protection of almost any aquatic plant.
