Do you want live plants or fake? If you get fake plants, I recommend silk/fabric ones with broad leaves. Plastic plants are okay as long as they aren't super spiky. Again, plants with broad leaves are good. If you get live plants, you probably will need floating ones unless you have substrate (gravel or sand etc). Water wisteria will float, as will java moss. Water sprite also floats.

Is he still blowing bubbles?

yeah, i'd rather have a fake plant. and yep he is blowing bubbles, also he is sorta diving down around his tank, exploring the heater, then hiding behind his castle then bouncing back up to the top, and blowing bubbles.

Sounds like he is regaining a bit of control of his swim bladder if he can dive down a little. That's good.

I have that exact anemone. While I have many fake plants and decor in my 10 gallons that are bright colors, I've recently read that sometimes fake plants with unnatural colors can stress certain fish. I personally think he won't be harmed by it, he might even like it to lay among the anemone fronds. Just make sure you soak and scrub the decor well in hot water before putting it into his tank, so that any chemicals that may still be on the surface are released.

Hope your betta makes a full recovery and stays healthy. :D

Yeah, I think that anemone thing is fine. I've seen other people get coral-like decor for their bettas and the betta loved it.

SKA, yeah, I don't see why not. He would probably like something new to explore. And you're welcome, I don't mind helping you out at all.
