Smile Favorite decorations and plants?

Hi all,

Looking for some opinions on what you and your bettas like best for decorations and plants. I've read a bunch of suggestions, but what do you think? I'm partial a couple of different styles, so maybe your opinions will help me choose.

Thanks!

J.

Anubias and Java Fern are easy to propogate and nearly impossible to kill. I prefer natural-looking tank decor, so things like cichlid stones, terra cotta pots, and driftwood pop up a lot in my tanks.

Things like that ^

And silk plants that are close to the side of the tank for him to squeeze between.

He really likes swimming through stuff, and that flower pot is no exception.

Hamster tubes are used for some fish.

I love the little pot, Luxavior! Thanks for the plant suggestions, babystarz, but I'm definitely not thinking of keeping live plants at the moment. Silk's the way I want to go.

I like broad leaf plants like these:

http://www.kensfish.com/moreinfo/mar...ilk-plant.html
http://www.amazon.com/Vibran-Sea-Bro...qid=1356933339 Vibran Sea has a ton of different nice silks

My fish use them like those betta hammocks, but it doesn't have the metal or that silly suction cup.

I love anything by this company: http://www.underwatergalleries.com/Home_Page.html It's all very soft and no sharp edges for my boys.
