Best decor for one gallon tanks

What's the best decor for one gallon tanks? Before you spout it's too small for a betta, I keep up on the WC's and they only house my tail biters since it's very easy to change the water to help them heal.

It is too small but you would need daily water changes live plans like Anarchis are good plants tail biters need bigger tanks and a lot of stimulation java fern and moss on a small piece of lava rock. In a small tank they are just going to fin nip more live food is good stimulation.

Frog bit is one of my favorite plants! Very easy, good cover for the bettas, and they seem to love them!

Any live plants are great IMO...just make sure you get ones to suit your lighting, fertilizer, etc...

If you could find a small enough piece of driftwood, too, I think it looks great!

Hey Shaina...I have a betta log in the bottom of one of my 1g. It also has one fake plant and a betta hammock. My other 1gs have some river stones and a small plant or two. All of my long finned males are doing well in them. The small betta log at Petsmart just fits in the 1g.

if you have to use a 1gal, i would suggest getting a tank piece that is a cave-type structure with silk plants attached (to take care of several betta needs with maximum space economy) if you can't find one like that, find a cave with inappropraite plants attached, pull those out of the threading holes and insert a good broad, leafy plant through the hole and attach it with aquarium cement. for instance, if you could only find something like this: http://www.drsfostersmith.com/produc...46&cagpspn=pla and then attach a plant like this: http://www.petco.com/product/119018/...ium-Plant.aspx it would work well, and leave your fish as much swimming room as possible.

I have a silk plant in each of them. What about this?

it's pretty, but unless it's positioned right up against the glass it won't allow for the kinda privacy bettas like. also, it might be a little low for them to actually get under.

My girls loved their betta hammocks once they got used to them.
