You can always tie java fern or java moss or anubias to a piece of wood. And a good floating plant that will mulitply like crazy even with low light, looks cool, and the bettas LOVE them is frogbit :)

Hornwort is my favorite and mine it doing very well ! It floats on top of the water surface and Perseus loves to hide and sleep in it and swim though it. Some people say its messy as it looses alot of needles while it adjusts to the tank water so what I did was QT using the tank water I saved from doing water changes and I didnt have many needles lost at all. I kept it in QT for a couple of weeks before I added it to my tank.

Anacharis is another good one for you , mine is doing well an floats at the bottom of the tank, you can put the stem into the gravel just abit but you dont have to. It didnt tale long at all until mine was growing new stems and one has reached the water line already, you can trim it and make new plants or just leave it alone and it will bend over and spread out over the surface of the water.

Both these are good beginners plants very easy to take care of and no fuss over them just put them in and watch them grow..I love mine !

Can never have too many moss balls!
I have duckweed on the surface, 2 java fern on driftwood, anubias and hornwort.
They're doing okay I guess with poor light. I fertilize them weekly with 1mL of seachem flourish.
I noticed the hornwort was messy when I put it in, some stems are dead or dying but I have some new growth now.
Good luck! btw, your avatar looks so nice! He looks like a popsicle :)
