I think I’m going to stick with the pea puffer idea. :)

Also @Colin_T, the dragon stone and driftwood I had in there is black, because of the sand. I tried to clean it off with hot water andI scrubbed it a lot, but it’s not coming off. :/

Black staining on rocks and wood will eventually fade but takes some time. It's from the anaerobic bacteria and is harmless once the wood or rock has been washed off and is in aerobic conditions.

Ok guys, pictures for the day!

As you can see I added more Anacharis, 1 little Anubias plant, and java moss on the driftwood. Also the water cleared up a little:

Here is a close up of what I did today:

As you can see, it already looks better!

Im starting to reconsider the pea puffer idea. I’m thinking more along the lines of a rescue betta from PetCo or PetSmart. @Deanasue, is it better to get a sick betta and try to nurse it back to health? Or get the best looking betta there, in my budget?

What do you guys think? Pea Puffer or rescue betta?

Depends on how confident you feel in nursing a betta back to health. Go to Petco. Stay away from PetSmart. :). Tank is shaping up.
