Do betta fish like lots of foliage? Advice.

I'm sort of torn between adding some larger plants and leaving the space open. Do bettas like places to hide or open space more? I bought a larger tank and am worried about crowding it, as it is really crowded already.

In general, fish like cover. Just ask a fisherman where the best place to drop a line is.

IMO, you could use a bit more plants/cover in there. If the plants you have now are live plants, when they grow in plant them along the back wall. It will give your guys the most space while still allowing for some cover. You could also plant them along half of the divider to give your boys some rest from each other.

A betta's natural habitat is densely planted, so the more cover the better. :) As long as they can still swim, they will be happy.
