Never fill an Edge tank up completely with a betta fish in it, they can drown. If not today. then soon. They need that surface air for survival. If they don't consistently find the opening that can lead to disaster.

you can Google other peoples' threads on the subject. I do not recommend bettas for edge tanks for that reason.

For now I would lower your water and just put your OCD on a shelf for today.

Wow, you've pretty much got it sorted then! That water level thing seems to make sense, and the nuts, yeah, that phrase works too!

(Good luck netting them when you need to!)
Yeah, I'm smiling when I think about that!
Am I cruel? Sorry!

Since I've had the betta I've left the air gap at about 1 inch just to be sure and so far it seems fine And yes I'm dreading trying to net the fish out of that tank

There are lots of threads of people planting their Edge tanks you can look at for inspiration. You could get a small Cholla piece and glue or tie a Java Fern or Anubias to it.
