~A Peace Lily – This is the only plant you can put in there.

I have had my betta in a large vase, it is a 5 gallon vase, with a peace lily stuck in the top of it, for over a year now. I think anyone with a heart that buys the betta and peace lily combo from a store can see that the bettas are not in a good environment. I don't know of anybody who keeps the fish in the orginal cup, bowl, or vase that it came in. I have a pleco that also lives in my vase. The two of them are very funny fish. The betta used to attack the pleco, but the pleco swatted him a few times with his huge prickly tail, and the betta left him alone after that. I don't have to change my water more than monthly in my tank, and having a live plant is very good because the plant puts in oxygen for the fish, and the fish put in carbon dioxide for the plant. I feed my fish, betta pellets. The pleco loves them, and I also feed him algae tablets. I have actually seen my betta nibble on these pellets. They are great friends, and I have a great tank for them. Lots of room for swimming and chasing. I also have a treasure chest in the middle of the vase for decoration, but it collects good stuff for the pleco. I suggest everyone read about keeping live plant tanks, it saves time, money, and everyone is happier!

Betta tip: Soak your plant roots to make it easier to get the dirt off before placing it in the vase with the fish.

It doesn't take a lot of work to come up with a great vase that has a plant and a beautiful Betta fish in it. Maintaining this set up is easy! It makes a great center piece for the dining room table or for special occasions (including weddings and showers). Or you can put it on a shelf and add to the décor of your home.

Ideas for beta fish plant and vase habitat

I'm thinking about buying a Betta fish this weekend and I heard the vases with the plants are harmful has anyone heard this? also do a search on these vases.. you will see the amount of info that strongly state that they are HORRIBLE. sorry to be an alarmist.. but i found this thread to be ALARMING. please plant enthusiasts.. if you find that this is too much work than do the lily vase but OMIT the fish. i know that bettas are pretty and ad 'FLAIR' to the centerpeice, but dont forget that they are living things as well. how would you like to be in a stuffy bowl with roots all over you and you cant breathe and you have to stew in your own feces and urine??
