Question Fake Plants? Decor?

I need some suggestions for fake plants for a 3 gallon critter keeper and 1 male Betta. (Still haven't got him yet but I'm working on it!)

I've read that the silk ones are best. Do they sell them at PetSmart? Sadly, I don't have a Petco anywhere near me so I have to stick with Petsmart and Walmart and a local pet shop.

Oh yeah, and what sort of decor, hiding places, etc. would be good for one betta? I was looking at this one but wanted to make sure it was safe. http://www.petsmart.com/product/inde...mdn=Fish+Decor

If anyone has suggestions, I'd really appreciate it!

Silk are preferable, but if not plastic will do. Just make sure there aren't any pointy edges on the plastic, as well as any caves. The one in the link looks fine. Petsmart should sell silk plants.
Just keep in mind the dimensions of a 3gal keeper.. I believe something like 11.75" L X 7.75" W X 8" H

Okey dokey! Thanks, Myates! I've been looking on their site but I can't find the silk ones. :P Or maybe it's just me. And also, I keep forgetting, they don't show some of them on their site. I need to go there and check it out.

Yup! If you are able to order online, Petco is really good as well.. and I found a cheap place where I get mine: Discount supplies
The plastic ones are very cheap!

Yup, just watch the wires and soak them for a while. Only the fabric/plastic kind.

Dollar stores have silk plants for well a dollar, have a look around there. You might wanna grab a small cave for him, my Jake doesn't like caves but each Betta is different.

Pet stores sells decor for expensive prices, if you're looking for cheap ways, Dollar Stores or just DIY.
