Some small cryps would be nice. Crypt parva is really nice and easy to care for.

Question for you guys, is this tank to small for a betta? I feel as if it is looking at it now, I'd feel like a jerk if I put a betta in a tank to small.

Most say 3 gallons is the minimum size for a betta, I like to give them more space but it depends on the betta really. Some get kind of lost in bigger tanks and prefer smaller and some like to roam. I think your tank is fine but wouldn't add any other fish or snails to it.

If your betta isn't constantly at the surface getting air or gasping you are good. Plants produce oxygen too so you should be ok.

Unless he's hurting himself I would just let him go for a bit. He'll get sick of it eventually.

If he doesn't stop in a week or so you could try adding things to the tank. Mostly they're curious in nature so it will give him places to explore. Also, it will give him cover from the "intruder".

Spec V - 1 betta, anubias, crypts (Just restarted after a move. No pics yet)
