Good plants for a Betta tank...

Know of any?

I'm finding it extremely difficult to find any fake plants that are soft enough for my Betta. Of the three silk plants I've bought, he managed to hurt himself on two of them.


I'm buying him a larger tank today, either a 5 or 6 gallon, and I'm thinking of going for real plants. But what kind of real plants are safe for them?

Also, how should I go about cleaning the plants when I bring them home? And... exactly how do you put them in a tank? Most plants I've read about say they don't do well just sitting in the gravel.


I'm sorry, I'm an idiot when it comes to trying something new. xD

Ok, I don't know much about Live plants, but I know that Java Moss is pretty easy NOT to kill. :)

Sorry, I don't know much!! Some other people will be able to tell you more.

I need something.... taller. He doesn't really have anything to sit on near the top of the tank, aside from the suction cup on the heater. xD


I've looked at Java Moss and Java Ferns. I think I'll get a Java Fern, but I still need a taller plant.

I just bought some Java Fern yesterday! Mine seems to be dying, but there are new plants sprouting from the tips of the leaves so I tied them down to a rock. I heard they're easy to keep so I bought them.

I'm also looking for some floating plants.

If you have a Petsmart near you they should have a big like waterfall tank full of every kind of plant you could ever want and some of them are so tall they go out of the water then back down under water tho the bottom then back up...

My Petsmart doesn't carry plants. @-@
I looked today when I bought the 5 gallon tank.


Petco has them though.... I suppose I'll have to look. I really just wanted to be sure that all aquarium plants would be okay with Betta fish.
