do i have to many plants

I have a round 1.5 liter tank from WalMart and I recently bought some plants and I feel like I may have too many. I bought the 3 pack of fake plants and it looks crowded but I'm not sure. Help please??

It is very difficult to buy too many plants.

Pictures? As long as they're not dangerous plants, you can almost never have too many!

Also, 1.5 liter is very small. I would highly recommend upgrading, unless it's a temp. home.

I a 1.5 liter tank and plastic plants yes you can have too many. But that being said Betta love places to hide and rest. If you upgrade to a 5.5 from walmart cost is about $23.00 for a starter kit with tank, filter and hood. put in about an inch of good substrate and a heater (total cost is about $35.00) and add some real plants ( You can tell when you have too many when the betta learns to walk on the top of the water.) but IMHO you can never have enough plants or tanks.

a 1.5 L tank is so smallxc isn't that less then half a gallon? can't you get him a 2 or 3 gallon? And plastic plants are almost always a no no, they are often too rough for their fins and can shred them!!!:(, in a larger tank water changes wold be about 2x a week not everyday like it hopefully is now....anyway please please get him a larger home, anything under 5 gals in an apartment will be just fine, I have 2 ten gals and a 5.5 in just my room....anyways your betta will love you for a larger home, and Java moss and Java fern and water wisteria are super super easy, cheap plants, please dont leave him in such a tiny bowl? xc if I sounded rude at all I assure you I wasn't trying to be I am just trying to speak for the fish....and also he's prolly wishing he had a heater right about now, assuming you dont have one so he WILL need one or else his immune system can be compromised and he will end up dying years before he is suppose to. But please even if its a gallon size tupperware! The more water is always better

1.5L is only 1.5 quarts, less than 1/2 gallon.. That is just too small to keep a healthy Betta -- with or without plants. Betta are among few fish that can live in small bowls. But a quart is impossible for so many reasons.
