They love lots of places to hide and some plants which are soft not scratchy (more of a concern if plastic) hanging near the top of the tank.

I always leave a couple of different plants, and moss strands now that I have some, loose near the top, opposite side from the discharge flow, in the most still area of the tank. All of mine love resting and sleeping in the crook of the plant stems. Also they seem to like to sit on the Banana Plant leaves.

Make sure you keep an eye on them to make sure this doesn't happen.
I will. Ty. They like to make bubbles both the Betta and the DG. The Betta wen ever I come to the tank he swims up and down in front the he'll make a few bubbles. He makes like 8 bubble it's so cool. And the DG makes bubbles under leafs of the real plants. it's so neat.

I will have look again what kinda leaf but I got him one of the Betta hammocks. They have tunnels and caves and logs to hide and my DG is kinda a push over. Lol I hade a neon tetra that would chase the DG. Unfortunately I lost that neon in the move :-(
