I have been thinking about it for pog, i have a plastic plant with resting spaces for betts, like each level had a resting spot, but you only used it in aerated tanks. My female loved it they would all climb on, but Pog ignores it.

My betta ignored it so I ended up using it as a filter baffle. I just suctioned it right in front of the filter with the leaf part turned toward the outflow of the filter.

My male Betta named Guppy ignored his hammock for the first day, he preferred to sit on top of the aquarium light instead. When I lowered the hammock I find him resting in it many times a day and he likes to sleep there. The trick is to get the height just right.

Guppy has long flowing fins and the 3/4" recommended was just no enough space for him, but lowering to about 2" made it a favorite spot in his tank.

He leaps off it like a diving board sometimes. It is very cute.

I just got the hammock and I do not see any wire in it, they must have improved the construction of it.

I had problems with the suction cup coming off of the tank wall and/or the leaf coming out, which was odd, but since neither of my fish ever used it I just tossed it out.

Thanks for all the input everyone! I love the log idea, I think he'll get a kick out of it as its something new to play with, but I guess we won't know if he likes the hammock unless we try it.

I do something similar with my hammock for Poseidon. I use it to when I'm filling up his tank for water changes. Helps keep it from blowing sand everywhere. Would use his decor, but cannot add it until I have at least 3/4's of the water added back to the aquarium.

That's exactly what I did and afterwards they started using them.

My Betta loves his Leaf Hammock!! At first he was flaring at it when getting use to the tank but now always loves to swim over on top of it

I bought the leaf for my betta and he never touched it. After a few weeks I threw the leaf out.
