Looks great.. I will suggest however that you take the bamboo out. Bamboo is ok in tanks as long as the leaves are sticking out.. if the leaves are under water they will rot which will cause you a bunch of problems.

I would also try adding a cave.. bettas really like having a lot of places to hide whether is a bunch of plants or a little cave.

Just don't sumberge the leaves and it will be fine. It's not a truly aquatic plant so It will manage for a couple of months of total submersion before it begins to rot.

Heater

Funny you asked, I was just coming on here to get some advice. We bought the Hydor Mini Heater for 2-5 gallon tanks, but notice the temperature fluxuates about 5 degrees, anywhere from 75 - 80 throughout the day. I guess depending on the temp in the house or if the light is on too or whatever. Is this going to be an issue? If so, any suggestions for another heater that I can actually set the temperature? One small enough for a 3 gallon tank?
