Question Live Plants?

I've been told that live plants help improve water quality and i was thinking about getting one for my small aquarium. What are some good plant choices for putting in with my single Betta?

Okay thanks! Are there any that are dangerous for Bettas that I should look out for?

WATER SPRITE!! I put that in caps because all of my bettas LOVE it. If you leave it floating, it provides them with cover at the surface. Two of my boys use it as their beds/loungers. One of them blew a bubble nest in it.

Java moss is another great plant for aquariums. It's very versatile and is very effective at keeping up water quality:

Sorry, I don't know which plants would be dangerous for bettas but I imagine that if you find one that you like, you would be sure to research it before adding it to the tank.

Hygrophila I think its called, I put it in my 12 gallon and it refused to even sprout roots so I put it in my 17L tank and now its as tall as the tank under the right light it is beautiful :)
