Need help decorating :)

So i have a pure white OHM (the one in my avatar) in a 10 gallon heated and filtered tank that has black gravel. I would really like to do a black and white theme for the tank, any suggestions on what i could use to decorate?

also, do you think sand dollars or dead coral would be safe? he was a pretty expensive import.. id rather not take any chances with anything that could harm him

Don't do any coral or dead sea creatures. They will change the chemistry in your tank. If you want to go that route get resin copies.

I honestly don't know what you can decorate with, it depends on what you want.

black biorb pebble sculpture (they put it backwards in video though?

white biorb spanish dancer sculpture also looks backwards set up in aquarium to me

looks like that company has a lot of black and white thingies, you might be able to find plastic plants in black and white?

I don't know if art glass is safe for aquariums but if it is (make 500% SURE it won't leach lead into the water.) that would open up a lot of things you could stick in there.

I don't know if you wanted to go more the route where everything is black and white, meaning fake plants and stuff, but if it were me (with that betta especially), and with that nice size betta tank, for a more black and white theme, I would do a scape with black sand, black background, white rocks for decor and to tie some plants (like anubias or java fern) onto, maybe a nice little piece of driftwood, and live plants...I love live plants! They make my tanks! And the bettas seem to love them!
