Congrats, it's a great little tank. How about a thermometer and some silk plants for the betta? I can't think of anything else at the moment....

i purchased a thermometer when i ordered the tank and heater. i also ordered this cool tree stump looking thing with a face carved into it for the tank. I was also thinking of doing live plants. is the lighting in this tank strong enough?

Sure. I'm growing live plants in mine. I have the simpler plants: Anubia, anacharis, guppy grass, ludwigia, java moss. The plants are doing great and in this particular tank I do not use ferts. I do use ecocomplete as a substrate, mixed with sand, in this tank so that may explain why the plants are doing well.
