Sprucing Up

I recently transported Betta-Max from New York to Boston. He rode in the cup-holder:

In both his permanent and temporary homes, he has a little fake plant in his tank. People claim that the plant is designed to make the tank feel more like the fish’s natural environment and to put the animal at ease. I believe that in most cases, the fake plant is not for the fish at all, but for its owner.
