    I just got a new Betta in a 5 gallon tank, and was wondering what aquatic plants would be good for it.

    If you have a light on the tank then good plants to try include Ambulia, Hygrophila polysperma, narrow Vallis and Water Sprite (Ceratopteris thalictroides).

    Water Sprite is a floating plant and the best plant for Bettas. It can also be planted in the substrate. The other plants need to be planted in the substrate.

    Another nice floating plant is Hornwort. I have it in a couple of my Betta aquariums.
