Advice needed

Hi guys i'm a new user and have recently started up a new aquarium , upon looking to see what i could stock it with i came accross the Betta fish and fell for them hook line and sinker!!!
I would like to know what kind of plants and ornaments are best to use, do i have to have silk, plastic or reel plants?

Great photos btw

hello! welcome to the forum!

a good rule to follow when choosing fake plants is if they catch on pantyhose when run over them then they can catch and rip a betta's fins so always check them to be sure :)

they also like things they can swim through and hide in. A lot of people put small terracotta pots in the bottom of the tank on their side as a nice cave

hope this helped!! :)

Real plants are good for cunsuming a bit of the waste a betta produces, just make sure that you purchase low-light plants like anubias, java-fern, cryptocoryne or moss. High-light plants just turn brown and die unless you have a specialty light fixture.
