I think the "creamy white" would show off your betta nicely. I'm assuming you mean fake plants? I personally would buy natural looking fake plants, there are some nice "silk" ones for sale.

What a beautiful, odd colored fellow! I would do bright colors, maybe bright red to compliment his dark green? Maybe a mix of white and red, but that might be Christmassy. White and yellow might look nice too, especially if you're a big fan of a team with dark green and yellow as their colors. You could try looking up solid colors on a picture search engine and sort of hold the screen to the fish or vise versa if he's in a cup or hold up some colored paper to him.

I was up last night and i was thinking that maybe that lime gravel and black gravel mix might look good cause im doing a white and ocean gravel mix for my other betta that comming aswell.

That would look nice! Black is always a good go to and color looks great mixed in.
