Well I have 2 different cases they both have the same tank 5 gallons fluval chi they both have the same plants java moss lilies and red root floaters one likes To spent time under the lilies leaves he only comes out to greet me for food and when we have visitors

In the other hand Leviatán he's always patrolling the top of the tank only one time I've seen him under a leaf he's there looking at people all the time he seems to prefer his tank with more space to swim

So I guess it depends on the betta's personality

I have a few plants, but as Kaz has gotten more comfortable with me and his home, he really likes space to swim. He's very picky about his layout in his tank and plants interfered with his fun. He's got enough to hang out in/on, but not too many as to make him grumpy.

Eeep! I just got a 30 gallon! I'm so excited to get it set up. I've been stalking this thread to get ideas. It probably won't be a NPT because I have a black thumb when it comes to plants. I'm lucky to have kept my java fern alive so far. But I'm definitely going to get silk plants. I'm so excited to get it cycled and ready for a new friend!

Thanks for your opinion!

I really think it can depend on the personality of our Bettas. Thats why I tried to give them space to swim and space to hide...and they love most the swimmings plants!

In my (!) opinion, a betta tank should be planted, if the Bettas use these plants to hide or not depends on the character of the fish. But at least there is a choice.

And now, I'm looking forwards to see more pics!

Thank you. Sadly his fins have been slightly damaged due to the filter intake. :( Dumbo is blushing from your compliment ;)

Hey everyone! This is Sunshine's new five gallon :) He loves swimming back and forth between/behind/around/through his plants. Normally I don't go for the more...ostentatiously coloured plants, but I needed fillers and they actually don't look too bad IMO!! (No, he doesn't eat tropical fish flakes, but they came with the tank haha)
