    Anyone know of any good types of plants to put in with my betta? He's in a really cute bowl that looks alot like a giant brandy glass and i think it'll look great with some plants comming out of the top.

    If you are thinking about a peace lily (the white flowering plant you always see in betta bowls at offices) please don't do it. Bettas breathe at the top of the water and if you cover the top of the water with a plant it will make it hard for him to get to the air.

    For the setup you are describing I would go with plastic plants. There are some very nice very realistic fakes out there. I think you can get the look you want without the hassle of real plants.

    Here is an article you might want to read.
