Is my tank too crowded?

So i just got a few more silk-plants (there's also 1 live plant in there), but it turns out, they were A LOT bigger than i thought they were. But i was wondering if you guys thought my tank is too crowded for my little fellow. it is a 5gal tank.





It is slightly more spacious, he can swim through it like a maze, but i kinda feel like maybe he needs more room to swim around in an open area?

and here's a pic of the little guy, blurry, but couldn't focus it well with my girlfriends camera. he used to be a table decoration at a formal dinner, and i just swooped him home :) been almost a year!

It's a great tank! And it's pretty open near the bottom, so it's good!

I think it's fine as long as he can get to the surface fine. I have some large silk plants on one side of my 3 gallon with the other side open. Domino prefers to spend all his time swimming through the plants. Howl does too when he isn't hiding in his Betta Log.

I think it goes back to their nature of living in heavily planted streams and rice paddies.

I think it's great. My fish LOVE plants, and I'm sure yours isn't any different. That's pretty much what their natural environment would look like, density wise.

They really enjoy hunting and exploring. I think it's great. He'll have lots of little spots to ponder. :)

Yeah, looks okay, as long as he can surface.
