Nice tank. Your betta is happy, no doubt. I keep mine in a 10 gallon as well, but not as nicely decorated as yours.....I used to keep him in my 60 gallon Discus tank, but he was the king and let everyone else know it...so I took him out to keep my discus happy. He was nice for about 6 months, then changed his attitude.
I also hate the whole "betta tank" thing in stores...so many types. A coworker has two on his desk in 1/2 gallon vases....I have told him about 10 times that sucks for them....even keep my eye out for a 5 gallon on CL to buy him...he can put a opaque divider in it or something...at least they will have 2 1/2 gallons each...they just sit there now....doing nothing every day....
In fact, today I saw one that was 1/2 gallon that came with gravel, light even a tiny HOB filter!!! Must have been rated at a cup an hour.... $20.
Just because they can live in a small space doesn't mean they like it....we keep our prisoners in a 3x6 cell, doesn't mean I want to rent one for myself....
Anyway, good job recognizing his needs and giving it to him....
