So I just moved my plants around for now. Again I know I don't have enough plants so when I get the funds I'll invest in more. For now does this look good or are there any suggestions of placement?

I like it. Get a couple of Assassin snails and you won't have to worry about pest snail that are on plants you buy. Keep watch for my announcement of AquaBid's sales event on July 19. You'll save a ton of $$ and get some really good buys on plants; especially from forum member, JDAquatics.

I think it looks great! I really like the positioning of the anubias on the left, it offers loads of places near the surface where you betta has the option to chill. Hopefully your little guys likes it too.

I sure once you get the fund and then in the future, plants; it will turn into a stunning tank!

I've never had any problems with 'Impulse Buying'. They're just animals that I forgot I had planned to get.

Update: I've purchased a plant package from forum member Sparrow317 that consists of Java Fern and more anubias plants. Which will be here by the end of the week or so.

I myself have added 2 amazon sword plants and a baby horned nerite snail to combat algae growth.

Should I purchase another horned nerite snail or any other type of snail to help clean the tank? My betta does not mind the snail at all and has yet to give it a hard time.

The tank has been cycled for about 2-3 months now.

This is what it looks like for now until the rest of the plants come in.
I moved my tallest anubias to the substrate of course left the rhizome out in the open.
