^My personal favorite silk plant selection. ;)

As far as more specific heater brands go, I would still advise against the Tetra present strongly(you've definitely been lucky carbon! You're one of the very few people I've heard of who those heaters have actually worked for). Based on my research and the experiences of others, about 9/10 times they don't heat the water past 76 degrees at the most, provided you get one that actually works, and they tend to burn out and need replacing VERY quickly as opposed to other, more expensive adjustable brands.

Over all though most fully submersible, adjustable heaters with a thermostat IMO/E generally get the job done about the same so so long as the heater meets those requirements, you should be good. A lot of people really like the Hydor Theo brand, though I have personally never used it myself. Personally, I'm a fan of the Aqueon Pro and Petcos brand, both of which have proved to be very reliable for me in the past.

Alright, thanks :) The nearest petco is about 50 miles from here but we travel up to that town quite often, so hopefully I can just go down there myself. I think it's better to see them in person than shop on the internet.

Also, I woke up this morning to this:

This is good, right!? He's never done that before, that I can recall.

Also,

He was flaring at his reflection in the glass. He used to do that often, but hasn't for quite some time.

:)

Oh yes, I can definitely understand that. Also, no shipping charges if you purchase in person. Thats always a plus.

Awww, look at him flaring like a champ! How adorable!! He really looks like hes enjoying his new home! :)
xD Bubble nests aren't bad, but they don't really mean anything in particular. Its an instinctive territorial behavior, something males(and even some females!)just do. ;)

I'm so glad he likes it. Now I really want a second betta. They are so fun. I can't wait to get his heater and new plants.

Thanks for all your help
