Roll a strip of that plastic mesh into a small tube and hold it with a rubber band. Stick it in boiling water for a few minutes. If done right, the strip will stay curled. Open it up and stick your suction cup in there.

Oh, that's for hammocks. I don't know of any good substitute for a Betta log.

Are the floating betta logs pretty prone to chipping? I was thinking of getting one for Coco's upgrade tank. (I'm moving him from a 3 gallon to a 5 gallon that's cycling right now)

Most of the people I've talked to have had chipping problems. :(
If you go here, scroll down and you can see a review with a picture I did for the log. http://www.bettafish.com/showthread.php?t=111859

Both mine chip, use a pingpog ball, fishing line, silicon, and maybe a SMALL ceramic jar?

Or heck, even use silicone on the ping pong ball directly to the jar, that might work. Just use a bead all the way around to make sure you got a nice grip

You could use the ping pong ball and a combination of Hally's idea. Silicone the plastic mesh to the ping pong ball. Not really sure of the practicality, but it's an idea.

I like the ping pong idea and putting some moss inside the craft mess would like it a nice soft bed. Yes my floating log chipped paint after a month and half had to take it out and give it a good brushing and rinsing and now its doing okay no more paint chipping so far that is. I put mine under the filter and it helps baffle the water and doing water changes I have to get the water level perfect for it to stay in place and Perseus gets mad if its not in the same place...lololol

Even with the chipping, are betta logs a good thing? I've been thinking of getting one for my new tank -as it's got a lot of overhead room.
