I put some of the extra floating plants in to cut down on the light. Thought it would make him more comfortable. Temp. Is 78°.
I forgot to get a background.

Very nice! I keep mine in a ten gallon and he loves the extra room.
Just throwing this out there... Water lettuce is good for big Betta tanks. Once it adapts to an aquarium (aka, almost dying and then when you think all is lost, it reproduces like crazy, but with smaller leaves and looks completely different,) it works perfectly for bettas.
He loves the shade, the corridors that the roots make, breaks up the surface agitation from my filter, and still has gaps in between to breath. I keep only half of the tank filled also and he too has hi floating log where he sleeps and rests that also has an opening in the top to go up for air.
It looks much better than floating plants(normal plants left to float,) but that's just my personal preference
