Are plastic plants safe for Bettas?

Fake Betta Fish Plants
That's perfectly fine even for those who don't ever wish to care for live plants. It's very, very important that you choose silk plants over plastic plants though unless the plastic is soft and not jagged. Betta fish have delicate fins which can be easily torn on hard plastic edges.

Also Know, do Bettas like decorations? Decorations or aquarium ornaments can really make an aquarium look unique. Bettas don't tend to be too fussy when it comes to aquarium decor, but something is better than nothing as bettas do like to be stimulated. They like things to hide in, rest on, and to build bubble nests around.

Beside above, are plastic plants bad for fish?

Artificial aquarium plants can harm sensitive fish, especially plastic plants. They do not absorb nitrates and carbon dioxide in the water nor provide fish with oxygen, thus they have no biological value in the tank. Artificial plants do not inhibit algae growth, but they do not help with it either.

Do Bettas like Java moss?

Java moss is good for beginners because it's incredibly easy to maintain and it's also a great aquascaping plant. Your betta will also like it because it gives him places to hide, explore and feel comfortable in. You can keep your java moss in water with a pH between 5-8. Java moss doesn't require much maintenance.
