Looks good. The red/bronze plant at the back makes the tank look deeper than it is.

Looks like DIY CO2 bottles to me. 1st bottle houses the yeast and sugar, 2nd bottle acts as a filter and a bubble counter.

Currently out of the hobby
Forum lurking every now and then

I really, REALLY love this. SO VERY MUCH.

"Less bad" does not equal "good".

From what can I see they are Syngonium podopyllum or arrowhead vine
Some Chamaedorea elegans or parlor palms.
They grow quite well in hydro culture and survive in low light conditions of homes. :3

Nice! I bet your betta has lots to explore in there. The emersed plants all around are a nice touch.
