Possible tank decor

I have a 5g Hex with my 3 Corycats and 1 of my Bettas in it right now. Anyhoo, which of the below decorations do you think would go best in my 5g? (I am going to keep this tank for future fish since it is expensive in stores and is awesome and I got it for cheap a while back, haha.)

Sorry the pic is bad, I want to put the decoration where the cory cat is on the bottom right of the tank.



the decorations I am considering:

(the cave one on the bottom)

My personal preference, for choosing decorations involves actually handling them in the stores.

Having had a bad experience with a sharp cave that decimated my poor halfmoon's tail (he has about nothing left of his tail fin, poor guy), I've never ordered them online since.

So, anyway, just feel them up at the pet store--they look cute, but you still have to physically look at them to make sure your betta will fit, and that they aren't rough or sharp for the fins of your fish.

I would go with the bridge with the most space underneath it, someplace the cories can all hide in together at the same time.

I admit I like the bridges. I think I might go with one of those. These are from the internet so I can't see them in person, but the betta isn't getting entangled in the fake plants in there so I am not as worried about tearing his fins more with one of these, I was looking for something that didn't look too jagged.

I only have 3. They seem content with the 5g. Half the time they sit in one place anyways :P

Anyways, Isnt there any LPS near you? Or even a walmart? They have tons of decorations you can look at yourself and judge whether or not they are safe for a bettas delicate fins.

I don't go to Petsmart cus it is a pain to drive there where I live, Petco by me doesn't have a good selection. and I dunno of another petstore around here. I have other things I want to get too and it will be cheaper to get them online at once.

I just asked which decoration would look best with the look of my tank. I am aware of things to look out for when getting decorations for my fish. Don't worry, I am keeping an eye out for my guys.

i like both the cave and the 2nd bridge. i really like the cave tho, its cute :)

question: does your guy get along with the albinos alright? i'm lookin at getting some cories but on the aquarium stocking calculator it said that albinos aren't recommended for bettas, so i'm curious, cause i love albino cories, they're adorable!
