You can get a 3 or 4 pack of plastic drinking tumblers (short, wide cups) at walmart, kroger, most grocery stores, and the majority of them will float just like the log, and they're usually about a dollar for a pack. :) I don't cut the bottoms off, and my guys just go in, hang out, and swim back out when they're ready. Works just like the betta log, but so SOO much cheaper. :)
They're food and dishwasher safe, so they're completely safe for betta, no worries about chemicals or anything like that.
And, they come in all sorts of colors, which is nice. :)

Some styrofoam may have it, or all may have that, unsure.. but anything that is food grade and used by humans will be safe for the fish - they won't release the chemicals enough to kill the fish.. otherwise we wouldn't be allowed to use it.

Ooh. o: Maybe I'll get some of those. I could give one to each of my fish and to my sisters' fish too so they can have places to hide.

That's good. I cut the bottom of the cup off and put it in her tank (like in the picture I posted earlier) and she's finally realized it's in there for her to rest in. She's hiding in it right now. Mission accomplished. :)
