I usually have java fern here and there The hardiest plant I have x.x Or a moss ball :) I do not have them in all small tanks, but I easily could. I put only my most tolerant bettas in the smaller tanks, rather than the "easily stressed" or "drama mamas" I make sure to work it around the fish, not the fish around the environment!

I have live plants in most of my tanks. My 2.5g is an NPT and doing quite nicely.

I do what Sena does...environment around the fish...I only put the hardier and less stressed bettas in the 1-2gallon tanks/ bowls. I also spend a lot of time watching my bettas so that Iknow their personalities...and then I put them in a tank designed for their individual needs

My tail biter had his own 5 gallon, but unfortunately because I lack room upstairs where there is more traffic (as what he needs) he is in a 1 gallon. And he is healing! And making bubble nests! And flaring! :)

We're new to fish, glad to see some positive comments about smaller tanks. We like this 2.65g, nice kit with a decent filter.

As long as there is proper care and the betta is happy/healthy, there is nothing wrong with tanks that are no smaller than 1 gallon.
Knowing what I know about them, I just have higher standards if I were to go back to using one. But since getting hooked on these live plants, all my tanks will likely have live plants xD

What are the best plants to aid in filtering smaller tanks?

The easier/tougher ones are Anacharis, Wisteria and...I *tink* Java Fern. I need to brush up on my fish knowledge a bit.

Th 1st two can be floated/given small amounts of liquid fert once a week. The Java Fern must be planted or tethered. But it can also be given small amounts of liquid fert once a week.
