Too Much Hornwort For Betta?

I recently redid my betta's 10 gallon tank. I have a big bunch of hornwort sort of just floating in the middle of the tank right now. My betta seems to like swimming through it/resting on it. I'm just wondering if it's taking up too much space or if I should try to anchor it to one side so he has more room to swim. Thanks!

Hello!

Firstly, I like your tank design! The two-tone substrate is cool. And your Betta has very beautiful long fins (slightly jealous, but i do love my plakat ).
As long as your Betta isn't constantly swimming and needs the extra space (in juxtaposition to a schooling fish for example) the amount you have is fine. Feel free to thin it out if you want, but I believe it's not necessary. (that stuff grows FAST anyhow)

Hope this helps and best of luck!

Thank you!! Yes it really does grow super fast, that whole bunch was actually taken out of my 40 gallon because it is currently overtaking that tank lol
