Umm the plant that comes in with the tank is kinda long and seaweed like...I've seen some pictures and video's of plants like that so I think it's fine...I may also get some fabric flowers as well...and I have a pot that I'm going to crack in half as a hiding spot.

Oh I think I know which tank you're talking about! It's the goldfish or glofish starter tank right? I think the purple one's 2.65 gallons and the orange is 1.77 (well that's how it is at my Petsmart).. They're super cute tanks :)

I don't trust gravel or plants that come with tanks... but that's just me. Can't wait to see pics!

Oh and happy early birthday as well! It's destiny ;)

yeah I think it's that...It unfortunately has goldfish food(I'll see if I can get proper food when I'm getting the tank though...)...but the petshop owner said beta's can eat it...at least till I get proper food...also I don't trust the gravel...the plant looked ok though...besides that I'm going to replace the gravel with glass pebbles.

Generally, don't trust pet store employees.
examples, I was told you can keep 3 males in a 5 gallon and that a female and male could get along no prob.

Jayy: yeah I kinda figured that out...it seemed fishy anyway...I'll get proper food for it...it may cost the fish a plant...but I think it would rather have food then a extra plant...besides that I never trusted the employee anyway.
