Silk plants are pretty common. You can get them at petco or any other pet store really. They're just the fabric ones.

My bettas have all had their color intensify since I first got them too. It's amazing really, how drastically they can change and become so much more vibrant.

IMO silk plants are better than plastic... but if you thoroughly check out the plastic ones and run pantyhose over them for safety they can be fine. You can get silk plants at walmart, petco, petsmart, or any other place that sells pet stuff.

You can go to petco or petsmarts webstie to buy all your betta needs. better selections than the stores plus almost everthing online is on sale most of the time. I just ordered a 3.5 kritter keeper (at least i think its 3.5), a treestump with holes and silk plants attached, 5lb bag of pebble beach rocks, and 2 other silk plants for 35 bux. all i need is a heater and a light source. probably 50 bux when im done.

If you bought the medium sized one, it's less than three gallons. I measured my medium sized kritter keeper and the measurements on most websites are wrong. I measured it at the top and bottom, and none of the measurements matched petsmart, or petco's measurements. I am 100% it's a medium sized Kritter Keeper too. It's still large enough to keep a betta in though. I was going to put Freckles in the Kritter Keeper, but my dad didn't want me to.

$50 is a lot though. I was going to buy a ten gallon tank, that came with a hood and light. I did the math, and everything I needed was under $50. Maybe Petsmart was having a sale or something online...

Laughing out loud at this one. I have one that's the same. Silly fish!
