The typos, etc. make it rather hard to determine what you are trying to ask.

I believe that you are asking if it would be a good idea to plant your betta's tank. If this is the case then the answer is yes. Bettas love planted tanks and there are many examples of them in this forum.

With this size tank the WPG rule starts to break down, so even with 18 watts over it you won't be dealing with a high light tank. If it's got a 50/50 bulb, you'd want to replace it with a daylight bulb so that you can take full advantage of the lighting. Other than that I would expect that it should work quite nicely as a planted aquarium.
