Bob Buttons has been using his leaf hammock for ~2 months now & no problems with it so far - His big beautiful fins are fine & he really loves lounging on it! I think I will try to take the metal wire out though, just as a precaution!

I was actually referring to pitluvs homemade hammocks :) they look like the edges might be a little rough. But I'm guessing that hasn't been a problem so far

I sand mine down with fine sandpaper :) I thought about burning the edges, but I know melted plastic leeches chemicals so I decided to just sand them lol

That sounds like a really good idea haha I didn't actually watch your whole video cuz my computer wasnt loading it but I just saw the finished one. I assumed you weren't having problems with it since you posted it on youtube but I was curious :P

I have one that i've tried in a couple of different tanks but none of my bettas has been interested. I've left it in Chrestomanci's (5gal) b/c he likes to zigzag around stuff close to the walls and he has less "zigging" obstacles than Keller (in 10gal with more toys:)) But no one sleeps in it.

I do give the floating logs a thumbs up. 4 of my tanks have 1 and they are all well-used.

Hmmmm I was looking at the floating betta log and it looked really cute & fun, but I read the online reviews and some people said that the edges were rough & could cut their fins, or that the paint starts to chip off, so I was reluctant to get it. It's made by the same people that made the leaf hammock, which my betta absolutely loves, so I was tempted to get it, but was scared to hurt my little guy if it wasn't a good product. How long have you been using yours and have you had any problems at all with them? Also, my tank is only 5 gallons - do you think that's enough room for one? Any feedback would be appreciated - Thanks!
