I have been doing these types of hammocks for years now. lmao! I tie them right onto the dividers. But now that i have moved everyone into their own individual tanks, i need to redo my hammocks with suction cups. lol

thanks so much for posting this! I just made teeney and tiny each their own. Tiny completely ignored it. Teeney swam into it, sat there for about 3 seconds, got a breath and then swam away. lol i hope they use them eventually xD

I don't have the kind in the OP with a cap, I used airline tubing suction cups I already had on hand, I got a 6 pack of them at petco for $4.50. They're by lee's brand... They come with little clips but I didn't use those for the hammock obviously.

I bought packs of suction cups at Petco, Petmsart, and a local dollar store (they were different sizes in one pack but I don't even remember what they were for, they came with little plastic hooks in them but those came out easily).

I think I liked the Petco brand better than the Petsmart, but that might have been because they worked better for my leaf hammocks where I was sticking a little silk plant leaf in there.

You could probably get suction cups at a hardware store too.

My boyfriend has been recently taking an interest in helping me make stuff out of plastic mesh and plastic lacing for our betta boys. He is currently making his version of this with plastic lacing woven all the way around the edge and plastic lacing as the tie across the top. He came up on this all on his own. He has only seen me on this website...lol....a lot....

Thank you so much! I need something for blinky he has trouble getting to the sourface since he is getting old. I put one in his tank today and he uses it quite bit, even came home from work to find him sleeping in it! And my other girl hope also loves hers. These are wonderful and super cheap to make! i actually just used the parts I trimmed from the top to making my dividers.
