Thanks! (I just redid it again last night, ha ha. Finally got some gravel in there.) Anyway, I got a lot of silicone anemones from Amazon.com and some from ebay. Just type in "silicone anemone", "silicone coral", or "silicone plant" under the Pets section. Or type those words into google and click Shopping. That is how I found the ones I wanted. The little houses or caves I made myself though. I bought silicone kiddie cups and cut them with craft scissors and glued them with aquarium sealant glue, then glued aquarium plant leaves to some of them. The silk plants are just from Petco, but there are a lot on Amazon too.
I will post a new pic soon, I just changed the colors around to match a little better. Everything is green, blue, or green-blue now because I ordered real plants and I want something where real and fake plants might blend in a little .. but I'm really not sure how that will work!
I could tell you how/where I got the stuff to make the little betta houses but I think most people would think it was a waste of money. When I just started making things for bettas I was paranoid about anything being too sharp so I made and ordered a ton of things that are made of silicone. I made filter baffles out of silicone cookie sheets, hammocks out of the scraps .. you get the idea. It's kind of ridiculous but I have fun doing it.
