I have 2 of those tiki head things and I put pog in a new tank once in a stressful situation, and the otherifsh were chasing him and thats the first place he went, I recently moved them to his current tank, and I saw him inside them, so he definitely likes them! :D

Heh, that tv is cute Maybe it's the fish that makes it?

So I got one of the floating mirrors and tried it out with Chicory. It says right on it, don't leave it in for more than 5 minutes, and oh my, I see why! He went crazy flaring at it and zipping around excitedly.

When I bought him, he was in a cup that said "Half Moon Betta" but I have never seen him pull off anything that led me to believe it. I was thinking super delta.

Well, check out the vertical line of the tail here. I think he just might actually BE a halfmoon Focus is off, he was zipping around nonstop and it was hard to get a pic of him at all! I noticed after I had taken the mirror out, he went and spent the next hour shoring up his bubble nest, which had been neglected and was kinda dissolving after his last water change.

(So after I took the mirror out, I promptly dropped it while cleaning it and broke the connector between the float and the mirror *sigh*)

My petco does no-t have floating mirrors, or any betta-specific things really... I use home-made toys, Pog loves to play with ping-pong balls, and little "frisbees" that are little plastic discs that float on the water. My female bettas love them too! they have a couple bite marks, but they LOVE them! I don't remember where I got them, I found them in the basement when I moved in O_O

I'm intrigued! Can you post a picture of the discs? kinda curious what they look like (and if I could find anything similar around the house)

I still need to go find a squinky ball and see what the bettas think of that!

I'll fix the mirror, it was just the connector that broke. No 7 years of bad luck...yet.

Odysseus gets the mirror treatment sometimes. It seems to encourage him to build big nests, and I like to exercise his massive fins.
The girls have each other to play with, and bite my hands during water changes.

Live plants are great, because as they grow/get trimmed they provide an interactive, changing environment. :)
