Redid my 'unplanted planted' tank!

Hi all, I have been MIA for about 5 months. Life got in the way, you know? I forgot to add Flourish Comprehensive to my tank for a while, and my plants suffered because of it. I purchased some new plants during the Aquabid SNE this month, and I rearranged the plants that were still going strong. So my 3.2 gallon tank with no substrate now has:

6 anubias, including 2 anubias white
9 new java ferns, 1 wavy java fern, 1 windelov, 5 existing java ferns
2 varieties of bolbitis
5 stems water wisteria
1 banana plant
6 marimo
Salvinia
Frogbit

Sharkie seems to like it!

Wow, I really enjoy looking at all the wonderful fish tanks on here.

I just started out fresh with a new 5 gallon/ 20l tank for my new betta.

I have added:
5ish Java ferns,
one nice long Anubias on a wooden root,
a Moss ball (I always wanted one, but could not get one because they are illegal in New Zealand; yay for shifting countries),
Plus some floating hornwort and Elodea.
My fish enjoys the floating plants and keeps resting/ hiding in them.

I also added a Buddha ornament for that extra Zen-factor.

And I also got a Nerite tiger snail for algae and un-eaten food, these guys are just so pretty!

What do you think?
Any more suggestions?

Updated my tank-
I kicked out the plastic plant from the background and instead added another root with tied on Java moss, a small anubias and Riccia fluitans on the top. Now the plants just have to grow in and attach themselves to the root.
I am quite happy how it turned out.

I've been tweaking this tank for a while now. It's still not anywhere near finished, though.
I love non-aquatic plants, so I wanted to tie them into my build somehow. I've had bad experiences with stem-rotting if I let the bottom of the plant set in water, so I thought why not do a land area? Petsmart was doing a dollar per gallon sale during this time so I went and picked up a 20gal long. It started out as a terrarium with a small aquarium set in the middle. I didn't like how the fish wasn't really a part of the setup though, and Renji was still glass surfing day in and day out, so I thought I should try a different approach.

I hate hate hate the substrate in the water area, so as soon as the holidays are over I'm going to try to grab some Seachem Onyx sand to replace it. Renji is loving the environment now, I catch him swimming around all day checking stuff out :) The shallow water means he doesn't have to rest in one spot near the surface anymore, and the only problem I've had with him is him getting scratched up on the dragon rock in the back corner (fixed that with lots of soft moss) and him hopping out onto the little creek part in the land area o.O He flicked himself right back into the water though, I think he was just thrown off by the water levels after I did a water change.

Plant-wise everything is growing well, my Anubias Pinto is popping off new white leaves again finally and doesn't get algae all over it like it used to due to the slightly-emersed place it has in the filter waterfall. Only plant seeming to struggle a bit is the Red Root Floaters, but I've never been able to get them to grow well.

Renji is getting older (He hit one year in my care back in October), and his colors are a bit faded now, but he's still as spunky as ever :) Love the little guy.

**The blue floaty thing in the water is a mister/humidifier btw**
