Help!

I am a new Betta owner and I want to make sure I'm doing everything.

1) Our tank is about 2 gallons and has a air filter thinger
2) We feed him once a day a small amount of "Betta" food we bought at Wal Mart
3) Our tank has one plant in it - should we get more?
4) We are using "Betta Plus Bowl Conditioner" in the water

Are his fins ok? His fins looked like this when we bought him, sort of "spiky" looking?

His fins look fine. They look spiky because he is a crowntail betta.

Beautiful fish, In case you are at all interested, I have noticed that when my betta needs a water change, when his water is too cold, or when he is depressed, his fins change to a duller color. When he is happy and feeling well, his fins are brilliant!

thanks for the answers guys! Do you think our light on the tank would keep the water heated enough?

I've read that plastic plants aren't the greatest for bettas, but if you run pantyhose by them and they don't snag, then your plant should be fine. :)
