Betta Toys?

I was thinking of getting the boys some toys so they arnt bored out of their mind sleeping 24/7 when im not around. I was thinking of getting them some rings, barbie beachballs, floating betta logs, or leaf hammocks for them :) They have big decorations to play with but they need something more XD Any other suggestions?

i hear ping pong balls are fun.
you could make a little creation out of legos and have it suspended in the middle of the tank (like anchor it to driftwood or a rock, or something) and let them play around that.
Legos float, fyi. Learned from experience.

Hmmm... maybe one of those decorations that makes bubbles would keep them entertained for a bit? Changing up the decorations outside of the tank is also a way to keep them occupied. If my Uno seems bored, I keep a tiny stuffed Mario near his tank. He won't flare at his reflection, but he loves to flare at his Mario for some odd reason XD

I had legos with my betta once. They're just plastic, dont leach or nothing, just float a lot. Make sure you wash them with hot water, and not have any sharp points showing, not that there are really sharp points, but if you can make one, try not to :P

You got me curious about ping pong balls, so I did some Googling and came across this.

It was a pretty entertaining article, I thought.
