I can't stop rearranging his tank!!

Sigh, okay.
SO... I decided to move my two anubia's that are attached to this black log thing I have in my tank.
The first picture is before when I only had one plant up there and the other two were on the ground at the other side (not pictured). I think the tank itself looked better with this before placement, but I think Sumo will be happier with the new placement because there will be more leaves near the top of the tank for him to swim in and lay on, he didn't seem to do much with them when they were near the bottom, and after i moved the first single anubia up there he just loved it.

BEFORE

(ONE anubia plant on top of castle for sleepy times)


AFTER with 3 anubias on top of the rock cavern



I know he's happier with more plants up top (or at least I think?)
but here is my problem



the right side looks so empty and it bothers me so now i need to figure out something else to put there

More plants? Maybe some nice pretty rocks or driftwood.

Mhmmm, I know my LFS has a tall cavern that is black and matches the log the anubias are tied to...
maybe i'll get that and a new plant or two.
he does love his caves...

and maybe more floating things :)

Bettas don't like big, wide open spaces, so some more plants and rocks/or driftwood.

Looks fine to me. What you need is a background. If you dont like the corny plastic ones with pictures on them you can just use plain black construction paper. Or a wrinkled up (brown) paper bag - It would make it seem like there is a wall of rock on the back. That would look cool.

Don't waste your time on a background, particularly if your tank is well lighted to induce algae growth. The whole rear of my 14 is lined with green algae and has completely covered up my background (which is fine with me).
