Okay, I wanted to get him something that would float near the surface because he recently cut his fin. I'll be sure to check for sharp edges, thank you!AquaticQueen said:It could be fun or your betta, just make sure you check it for sharp edges. Your betta may or may not use it depending on it's personality.
In a 5 gallon, make sure it isn't in the tank 24/7 because a 5 gallon is pretty small. Leave it in the tank for 20-30 minutes at a time 2-3 times a day.
I have one of those, my fish keeps knocking it down somehow. I may have gotten one with a bad suction cup.VeiltailKing said:You could also look into one of those suction cup leaves that you just stick to the glass of the aquarium. It takes up less space and he would be able to relax on it. Plus, you could condition him to lay on it by feeding above where the leaf is.
That sounds promising, does water wisteria have to planted in a certain substrate?JettsPapa said:The female betta in my 40 gallon breeder tank likes to rest in the crowns of the water wisteria. Just a thought in case you want an option to fake stuff.
I can, here you go! If I got it, I would put it in the back left corner. You can't really tell with this pic but it's empty over there. I have a leave already but I was thinking abt replacing it with the log.Fisheye said:Can you post a picture of your tank?
I agree with those who suggested adding live plants-any kind that will do well in your setup.
Yes I tested the plants. Although, I didn't have a panty hose thingy so I used a wet tissue. It didn't tear on any of them. Okay, I was just considering getting something else close to the surface since he cut his fin on a decoration ( that I have now removed). Yes, I posted some stuff about a ten gallon, but since the log was so cheap i was just considering itFisheye said:Thanks for posting a pic!
Have you done a snag test on all those plastic plants?
He will rest on the plants at the surface-not buying the log or leaf will save money. Aren't you posting about setting up a 10 gallon with sand, etc??
