I am new to the Betta world. I'm an adult too, and when I was a child I never had one of these fish because I thought they were like pirahna and mean. I never liked mean creatures. So, I've had fish, just not these fish.
So, what I'm wondering, since I've never heard of it until online shopping e-bay and on the betta eating silk plants thread;- Why do betta need "resting plants"?. I don't understand this phenomena. And, am wondering if someone can explain why there are things like $15 betta hammocks
(special leaf) for sale? If need be, i'll make a hammock out of live leaf & change it.
