I like java moss since it is low maintenance, slow-growing (which equals less maintenance also) and doesn't need any special fertilisers or lights to do well. Plus my fish enjoy hiding in it and swimming through it.
It all comes down to personal preference in the end. I don't think a betta can tell the difference between a silk plant and a live plant and I don't think they care either way.
I agree.... Are any of the plants on my list incredibly low on plant matter it leaves behind and nearly no lighting conditions required? :)
Eleocharis ''parvula'' (hair grass)
Pink or orange water lily.
Echinodorus 'vesuvius' (AWESOME snake bamboo-like twirls!)
Fissidens splachnobryoides (the bottom moss)
Marsilea quadrifolia (water shamrock)
Anubias, Petite Nana (just big leaves)
APONOGETON ULVACEUS (large flat curvy)
Corkscrew Vallisneria (long snake twirls)
Onion Plant (Crinum thaianum) (long, stingy, spacious)
I mean, likely hardly anything left over to clean up XD this was a disaster with one plant that i'm now wanting to sell/give away.
