not at all overplanted ghost shrimp rather like plants and hiding places in fact you could add more lower ground planta if you want or even a marimo ball if your light can handle it

actually there are NO live plants in my area. it sucks. I have to travel a 30 hour commute to get to a store that sells it. About the plastic i felt them first and made sure they were the softer ones. i put them in hot water to attempt to make it softer and it feels better now.

That may not be true. Some people can never use plastic plants, but I've had bettas for years with plastic plants only, and have never had a single rip.

If it does become a problem, then remove them.

i tend to be over cautious with delicate finned fish and raven as for your lfs situation next time you go to ur lfs or are in that area pic some up living.plants make a nice addition itl b worth it when you in the area but research first of course
