Betta on the rocks

Remember a while ago when i wanted to make a 25L betta tank? Then i cut a piece of my finger of(not intended to lol) and then i turned the tank into a shrimp farm.
Well i removed the shrimp today(put it in my 135L shrimp farm) and rearanged the decor a bit and got a nice male betta, dark red with blue stripes.
But to cut to the chase here it is:
P.S sry for the murky water but when i rearanged the tank the water got a bit ... murky. Will settle by tomorow.

He'll like that. There looks like there's plenty for him to investigate in there.

The rocks are green travertine as for the plants well... riccia, lemna minor, moss, pistia, staurogyne, sagittaria, etc.
The aquarium is big enought for the guy and it only looks full he actually has a lot of room to swim in and he also has nice places to hide betwen/under the rocks i aranged them in such a way that there are plenty of "caves" to explore and also "caves" that he can use to go from one side of the tank to the other.

Nice one. Bettas love that sort of setup.

Thanks for the compliments.
As floaters i have riccia, lemna minor, pistia and eichornia crassipes(i just love the flowers this plant makes even if i have yet to see them flowering in my tank).
