How about 1 or 2 bamboo plants? They are inexpensive and grow very easily under room light. I had few of them in my 5g tank and had no problems. Wish that poor betta the best!

Thanks Greenkiwi I know some bamboo will grow in water but some will not I am not sure what the kind is that will.

Kindest Regards,
Amanda

Keeping fish its not a hobby it is a passion!

55 gallon, 44 gallon, one 20 gallon tank, three 10 gallon tanks, and a 2.5 gallon all with real plants.

I have MTS and there is no cure.

the standard kind they sell in the pet store will work, just make sure the leaves are above water.
