    You should not be having any problem.

    Your tank is great for a Betta, with a lot of living space for it to explore around. The plants are well-arranged, very nice! Stick to the personal style you prefer.

    For good surface agitation, the tank water level should be at the same level as the water outlet of the filter. This way, the water coming out of the filter will push the water surface to every part of the tank instead of it falling on one spot only.

    IMO, you should plant the Anubias (front right) and Fern (back right) on piece of driftwood or stone. If planting it on substrate, the rhizomes should not be buried under substrate. Otherwise, it will be rotten.

    They are all tied on driftwood, think cause same color as substrate hence camouflage.

    Photo not very clear but looks like ambulia to me. I have it in my tank and it grows like a weed. Perfect hiding place for shrimplets
