When you go the plastic route, you won't ever have to worry about the plant dying, but you still have to be careful when picking one out. Inspect the plastic plant carefully to ensure there are no sharp points or edges that could catch on or tear your betta's delicate fins. Don't opt for fabric plants, thinking that the lack of rough edges will be safer. Usually fabric foliage has wires inside the leaves to allow you to bend and shape them, but the wire can leech metal into the water which can poison your fish. Always thoroughly rinse any plastic plant with hot water before you put it into your betta's bowl, and remember to do the same each time you change the water. (Don't use soap on aquarium decorations.) Plenty of aquatic plants are suitable, but a few can be unsafe for your fish. With betta-safe plants, you and your pet can enjoy the aquascape worry-free.

Betta fish appreciate plants they can nibble on, rest on and hide behind in their habitats. Plenty of aquatic plants are suitable, but a few can be unsafe for your fish. With betta-safe plants, you and your pet can enjoy the aquascape worry-free.Many plants sold with or for betta fish should be left out of an aquarium. Bettas are commonly sold in glass vases with peace lilies or bamboo, neither of which is aquatic. These plants will start to slowly die and decompose in the water, and the betta's environment will become poisoned by the spike in pH levels. Do your research to ensure that your fish are not underwater with an unsafe plant.Betta fish are known to be jumpers, and experts recommend they be housed in lidded aquariums. As such, avoid plants that will grow above the water's surface and push up the tank's lid. Meanwhile, any plant, even a plant safe for bettas, become unsafe for fish when they die. Dead plants rot in the water -- leading to spikes in ammonia -- and become deadly. To avoid any imbalance in pH levels, clean out dead leaves regularly and remove plants that are no longer thriving in the aquarium.When selecting live plants for your betta's bowl, you can choose from plants that live under water and can be placed directly in with your fish, or those whose roots are the only parts submerged, with the leaves sprouting up out of the top of your betta's bowl. Java moss is one of the betta-safe plants that will live underwater with your fish, and it is effective at keeping nitrite and ammonia levels down. Chinese evergreen is another plant you can put in the water with your betta. If you would rather have a plant that can serve the dual purpose of providing decoration for your living space as well as environmental enhancement for your fish, submerge the roots of a peace lily or a philodendron in his bowl. Remember to thoroughly wash all the dirt off the roots before putting the plant in your betta's water.
