You need a heater, and bettas aren't brackish or saltwater, so you don't need salt...

I also feel six bettas might be one too many, I dunno, I've never had a sorority before.

As previously stated Aq salt not needed unless you're treating for disease. I would fully cycle the tank using pure ammonia before adding fish. It'll be more iffy in a 10g IMO because theres less space for them to escape each other. You'll need LOTS & LOTS of plants to break line of sight & some caves for them to hide in. I have a sorority of 10 in a 46g, I don't think I'd do a sorority in anything smaller than a 20g.

Also, you MUST cycle it . There are two ways to do it, fish in or fish less. Here is a link for fish in: http://petfishclub.com/cycle-with-fish-fish-in-cycle/ And fish less: http://petfishclub.com/fishless-cycl...-pure-ammonia/ I feel like a few websites could explain it more than me, LOL

Good plan. BTW, if any of the bettas try and kill each other, rehouse the one that's being aggressive.
