So what kind of par is needed for those high light plants? The tank manufacturer describes my light has having 136 par 6" below the light.

I started a proper build thread last night.

I'd stick with low light plants like moss, ferns, and anubias some water lettuce will be appreciated by the betta since they like to blow bubbles under neath floating debris. Get some indian almond leaves for sure to help with the ph in the water.
this site will guide you on low light plants and others too. Don't get any plants that are demanding or else they will melt and rot your tank

What do you think are good plants for a 4g nano and betta?
I'm thinking a riccia/dwarf baby tear for ground cover, but not sure what to do with the rest. Something taller for background. Maybe something floating for mr betta?

Cool! I didn't know about the ADA soil.
Ordered a bag and going to pick up in person. Been wanting to see their shop.

ADA aquasoil maybe? They have ones that resemble the Amazon, SE Asia, Africa etc;
plants; ferns, mosses, anubias, bucephlandra are also cool.
floating plants; red root floaters, frogbit, water lettuce

Thanks for the info!
Didn't think about the for sale forum.
What intensity would this light be considered?
It says it's a triple band led system with 136 par at 6".

I think any Eco Complete will be fine.

Any recommendations for online plant shopping other than liveaquaria?
And with the carabsea eco complete i mentioned above... coarse grain ok, or do i need the fine grain?

Thanks! Good stuff!!! That helps a lot.
And oh yes.... there will be pics.

With that small of a tank & the possible aggressiveness of a betta about the only thing I'd put in the tank would be a snail like a zebra nerite.
Many of the anubias have large enough leaves for a betta to hang out on.
Post pics when you have it set up.
I love betta's!

From my experience with them, the bigger their tail, the more likely they are to tail-bite. So you definitely need to keep an eye out for that, espeically if your getting a HM. They also do best in warm water so 78F or higher is probably best.
I have my male in a 5 gallon with some hornwort, guppy grass and water lettuce. Bettas like to sleep in/on plants so something with a broad leaf would probably be appreciated. A floating plant like water lettuce might be nice, males like to find something to build their nests around.
