Is this environment good?
I had added the diy bottle trick to prevent water current going down so it is going out on the sides. The plants are not moving from current.
Hard for me to tell if it is happy or not.

Pretty! I think that's a fine tank
I might suggest you to put Indian Almond Leaves in the water, then it'd be even more calming for the betta.

What they do is tint the water a light to dark brown color (depends on how much you put in) and helps fight off diseases if the fish has any.
Just be careful with that bottle, he might be able to snag a fin on the plastic. Plenty of my bettas have done this.

It's looking good, but I do agree it could do with some more places for your betta to hide and explore.

I tried that bottle technique on my filter but found it didn't slow the flow enough for my betta not to get pushed around so I ended up buying some cheap filter sponge and attaching it over the water output with an elastic band and that really slowed the flow for him to swim around easily.

Very nice looking set up! Like the other guys said though it could do with some hiding and exploring terrain. Maybe some drift wood?
You can tell if your betta is happy and healthy if his color looks good and he starts making a little bubble nest.

I would add some kind of a rock cave. Bettas like swimming through things or resting inside of them.
