I completely redid Pringle's tank.
Removed river rocks, replaced with sand
Removed silk plants, replaced with live (currently growing betta bulbs and on the left I have a lily bulb and an onion bulb waiting to sprout!) I'm hoping they will get large enough and give Pringle lots of hiding spots lol.
I also removed the fake coral and put a piece of driftwood and than attached some java fern to it...oh and I included a clay pot for him to hide in.
So far he seems much more calm than in his previous surroundings.

That tank looks amazing JD3P! I love the sand and the bamboo, real plants make betta tanks look so much better. I wish I could keep plants alive :)

Haha thanks. I got that snail about a month and a half ago, he has grown almost three times the size he was when I got him O_o but I'll take that as a good thing! lol. The sand I have in there is play sand from Lowe's, here's the link:

If you decide to use this just be really careful and make sure you clean it extremely well. It took a VERY long time to get clean, and I had to make a few water changes even after I put it in the tank and thought it was ready. But I think if you are willing to put in the time and do the water changes (and have a temporary home for your fishy for a day or two) than I say go for it lol.

What kind of snail is that and what do they eat? Or what do you feed them?
