Unhappy Caves!?

I need to buy a sort of "cave" like thing for my betta, but they all have sharp edges, any suggestions?

Yup get a little terra cotta pot and place it on the bottom of the tank without rocks, then pour the rocks on top of the pot so its under the gravel.

I use a terracotta pot for mine. We cut it in half and sand the edges, but if you can't do that a whole one will work if you can find one small enough. Just make sure to seal the bottom hole as your little guy will try to make it through if it's big enough. I have also seen people use votive candle holders and use aquarium sealant to put rocks on it. Good luck!

I use an espresso cup on its side. Bought mine from a crate & barrel outlet store, but they have them online, or you could go any place that sells them.

crate & barrel espresso cup

No rough edges at all.

I use terra cotta pots - break out the bottom & sand the edges. It's very soft so it sands very easily.

I also use coffe mugs layed on their sides. :)
