TBFW #1: Tutorial: DIY Leaf Hammocks

Craft: DIY Leaf Hammock
By: Teeneythebetta

Your betta is busy all day, swimming around, begging for food and just being down right cute, right? That is some tough work, and its only fair for them to have a cozy hammock to rest on! If you agree, follow this tutorial below courteous of MollyJean.


What you'll need:
-Folding cutting board (these ones are from Big Lots)
-Suction cups
-Aquarium Safe silicone


Directions:
1. Cut a leaf shape using the folding cutting board. Make sure the tip is rounded off and there are no jagged edges to prevent injury.
2. Scour the center of the leaf to fold it up and put a few cuts in the "stem" and fold it at the tips so that the silicone will hold better.
3. Fill the back of the suction cup with the aquarium safe silicone and press the "stem" in.
4. Let sit for 48 hours before adding to your tank.

I might just do this... but how do you know what plastic is safe to put in the tank? I was thinking of doing this with some plastic folders that look the same as your picture from the dollar store.

Im not sure what decides which plastic is safe or not.. sorry :/

Anything that is "food safe" is generally going to be okay.
