When buying decorations; be careful and make sure they're silk plants that you purchase. Plastic ones can easily tear fins and cause problems.
-2.5 Gallon+ aquarium
-Water testing kit (Need to keep a special eye on Ammonia, Nitrate and Nitrite.)
-Betta pellets New Life Formula is highly recommended.
