New here, would love some opinions

Hey guys new to the hobby but im really enjoying it. I was wondering if this set up is appropriate for the fish. Its a 5.5 gal with a filter, a heater set to 78-80, a plastic plant and a piece of drift wood. Am i giving what it needs to thrive?
Also id like to post a picture in here, how would i go about doing that rather than adding a link

Your tank sounds like it's off to a great start. A 5.5 gallon tank has plenty of room, and the temperature is right where it should be. The only thing I would be careful of is the plastic plant. Does it have any sharp edges?

Welcome to the hobby!

that would be more than enough for your betta, just make sure that your decors don't have sharp and rough edges. as much as possible, use smooth and rounded decors.

Definitely a good start. I would look into adding more silk plants to his tank--the more cover you provide for him the more happy and secure he will be.

Have you researched the Nitrogen Cycle yet? If you plan on keeping the tank filtered, this is a process that will be instrumental in how you maintain your tank from now on, so it's very important that you understand how it works and how to cultivate and maintain a healthy bacterial colony in your filter. Until you have a liquid master test kit and a firm understanding of the Nitrogen Cycle, you should plan on doing one 100% water change per week.
