I would get a cave & some more plants. (: Something taller thats broad and leafy that he can sit/rest on are usually favorites. Make it easy to get to the top. (they're lazy)

Im thinking of getting water plants for betta tanks and some more artificial plants and betta hamocks. As for the gravel I think I will wait for the gravel till he gets much bigger.

I don't have gravel in the bottom of my 2.5, makes water changes a breeze. And I dont have to worry about poo-ey gravel/sand. xD

Yeah, I'd agree with waiting to get substrate for him for now... It's so much easier to monitor the health of the fish and to clean a bare-bottom tank, and with a baby those two things are pretty darn important. My baby has loved the Anacharis that I've left floating in his tank and the hammock I made for him, though - lots of cover definitely seems to be appreciated!

Thank you Pittypuppylove that's exactly how I feel about gravel and everything else you mentioned.

Adorable baby! A cave/hidey hole would be a good idea.
