you could try Java Fern. that's a hardy plant.
Amazon sword is also a good one too.

they should have both of those at your LPS

take out the fake plastiv plant, it looks like it could really tear the bettas fins. Add some live ones and there you go! ")

I would definitely add more plants and a cave. I will caution however against adding live plants unless your tank is cycled or going to be cycled. If you don't cycle you need to do 100% changes (or close to it) and that is really stressful on plants.

If you do decide to cycle live plants would be great. Java fern would probably be your best bet. Java moss grows very fast and would take over that small tank very quickly. Java ferns grow slower and would require less pruning. You will want to add just a little more gravel if you do plants... but java moss can be tied to a river rock or piece of driftwood so the amount of gravel you have wouldn't matter.

Ok, maybe not pokey, just stiff... Make sure your betta can't get stuck in there!!!!

I have something similar in my 2.5 gallon. I have those collumns and a statue of Aphrodite, and two silk plants.

I saw some nice silk plants at wal-mart today... 3 for $5 (about). They're perfect and have no chance of fish getting stuck anywhere. I think one pack of 3 would be perfect for your tank. They also have really cheap caves (albeit not very cute).
