I just completely rearranged the tank, so:
(and I just noticed there's spots on the outside of the tank, where did those come from?)

Just some friendly suggestions... I notice you aren't using a heater. Bettas are tropical fish and are happiest when their water is around 76 F - 82 F. You will need to purchase a aquarium thermometer to monitor the temps, but they are cheap. Unless the ambient air temperature is constant 80 F where your Betta is kept, then his tank isn't warm enough.

Also, I'm sure Mr. Betta would enjoy having some plants and a hiding spot he can retreat to.
Done :)

Got a resin stump and a heater. I already had some plant pods in there, but I'm sure it will be at least a month before they get to a decent size.

Where did you get that heater? Are there different sizes? I need one for a 5 gal.

iv been thinkin, how about do you go with that lamp one.. i mean wouldnt u usually use a lamp to help light a room when its darker outside. and by this time itd already had ceiling light [usually] or ambient light from window for many hours..meaning your beta wld have lights on over maybe 15hrs? do you just use it as decoration and only turn light on for the 12 or so hrs ur betta needs, or do you realy use it as a lamp too

O.o ik i personally have all my tanks in my room. all the lights r on only up to 13hrs. and then i have blk lights in my ceiling so i can see were certain things/points are and i dont have lights on too long.. but thats just me, im weird lol
