Too many plants?

Is there such thing as having too many plants in your betta tank? I heard they really like a lot of plants because they like to explore and also have places to hide. I recently went out and purchased some more accessories for my betta's tank, but after all was arranged, I realized that it might be a little cramped in there. He seems happy enough, but do you think he'd be happier if I removed something?

It looks fine to me, though I can't see the amount of plants in the back very well due to the lighting in the picture.

No problem! Yeah your tank looks good to me, he probably enjoys chilling in the plants. :)
How many gallons is it out of curiosity?

it's a 2.5 gallon, but just today I actually purchased a 5 gallon hexagon/cylinder-shaped tank that should be coming in the mail soon. I never thought I would enjoy owning a fish so much, it's becoming more like a hobby for me ^_^ I have to really try hard not to purchase a second betta.

wow! do you really own 10 betta?? that's crazy! where do you put all the aquariums, hahaha. you must have an entire room dedicated to fish. I won't be able to have more than 2, because I'm a poor lady just out of college. I cannot afford any more tanks! I'm going to try to stick with one fish for now, but because I will soon have an extra tank laying around, I'll see how long that lasts.
