I think either of the pots you are looking at is betta safe enough. They have a protective slime coating for a reason after all.
I love that floating log. I may pick up a couple of those to try because I have multiple fish who would love one.

Thanks Do you think pygmy catfish would like the pot too?

Oh my word our betta LOVES HIS LOG. He is obsessed with it. Especially now that we have started feeding him in there...

I would think so. Though, my dwarf cories didn't ever really use caves much. They generally just schooled around around wherever, or would hang out on/under plant leaves. Both bettas and dwarf cories love anubias plants.

We aren't quite ready for real plants yet, although I'm sure both the catfish and the betta would love them. We have quite a few fake plants of different variety though. And pretty black sand.

Are real plants hard to deal with? Do they ever come with parasites or anything you don't really want? We may try it at some point, I know they are good for the tank and the fish, but, we just started having a tank and it's all still so new to us, so we don't want to mess with anything else yet

As long as you get some kind of a fluorescent light or led (just not incandescent), real plants can be very easy. I have real plants in every tank, and all I do is shove root tabs under them sometimes when I think of it. I only buy super low maintenance plants. I think they add a lot of the tank, and fish really love them. They also eat up nitrates which is nice.
I have never gotten any sort of parasite, but it is quite possible to get snails. Personally, I could not care less about pond snails though. I just leave them be to do their thing. They are a good way to know if you are over feeding, because excess food makes their population grow quite a bit.
