This is along the line's of what im thinking planting wise lots of long stemmed and broad leafed plants to make a canopy where they can travel undisturbed ,in the mid area of the tank with amazon fern's and elodea densa making most the back ground foliage also adding height and shelter with a mixture of short and long grass in the foreground just for when they feel brave.
In my gourami tank the only viable way to see the fish was at the top of the tank or from the front if they decided to hide away (wich the pink's did most day's) u would be forgiven to think the tank was empty other then the shoaling neon's and platty's with random visits from the mix dwarf gourami's but it still looked amazing and i found my friends became more transfixed trying to spot them that the TV became less of a focal point :D

I love labyrinth fish as well <3 Going to be getting a betta myself once I can get my 5 gallon setup and cycled, and my dad and I have both kept gouramis off and on (I actually just lost the kissing gourami my mom bought me as a gift. His name was Amor, and he was quite a character).

It sounds like your first tank was beautiful =3 Do you happen to have any photos of it back before the heater event?

If you want to grow grasses in your tanks, you'll need a very bright light (T5-HO or more), nutrient-rich substrate, and possibly C02. Those things can be so difficult, especially the foreground grasses. Although again, I wouldn't really recommend the betta community setup. You will inevitably have losses, no matter how peaceful it is at times. The only way to try a betta community without losses is with other betta species such as betta pugnax etc. Many of the mouthbreeding bettas can be kept together but they also get very large and need tanks that are at a minimum 20 gal long.
