amber, its not really a matter of what plants
will go well with the betta. he would enjoy any type of live plant
the question is what plants
would do best in the environment you have. aquatic plants
are a bit different to care for than terrestrial plants
. you need a delicate balance of fertilizer, light, and CO2 injection. too much of one, or not enough of another will cause the plants
to not grow, even die, and algae to take over. some plants
do well with very low light, no ferts, and no added CO2. others require very high levels of all three.
i'd suggest you start asking questions at a forum like http://www.plantedtank.net/forums/
