Question Opinions: Good replica plastic plants?

Hi again, another opinions board, this time on the numerous plastic plant decorations available for tanks. I've seen a few boards on the healthcare forum say that the plastic plant they put in their tank ripped their betta's fins, and I'm meanwhile looking at the plastiplants I bought and worrying they might do the same. I know we have an Easy Plant Care Guide, but not a reference for plastic decor, so...

In your opinion or experience, which plastic plant decorations are/were best or worst cohabits of your betta's tank? What species of plant did they mimic? Where did you get them? If they were a problem, how long did it take to manifest as a problem?

I'm not talking about silk/fabric plants, though. The general consensus on those seems to be that they're okay, though I doubt they clean very easily.

I use some plastic plants in my tanks, and I find certain ones work well while others don't....

This is an example of a plant that worked well...



These types don't..

I have those here too, but I only use them with my females and have never seen any issues. Personally, I would try it and if your Bettas tail starts to show some issues, remove it :) I have silk plants that have caused issues with tails, so sometimes its a wait and see answer lol
