Betta Hammock?

Hi all!

After buying one of those suction cup plants for Soap (my betta), which he loves and sleeps in, I think I will get him the Betta Hammock also from ZooMed. I can get it at a local retailer. I just want to see if anyone else has it and what they think of it.

Thanks!

I have one. My betta hardly uses it, don't waste your money. It has a metal wire in it which can rust. There was a member here, her betta was killed because of the wire poking out. I took mine out, it was pretty easy.

You need to take the metal wire out with pliers. It took a week or two for my Fred to know it's for resting. He then lounges on it like a sofa when he was in the 2.5g MBT. But after moving to the 5.5g tank, he stopped using it and started resting on the floating Wisteria.

I'm pretty sure my snail uses it more often than my betta...

Hmmm... Maybe I'll wait a bit, but I like that idea of making my own. Thanks all!

i was thinking of getting a hammock because i noticed that my betta liked laying down on my fake plant, the plant rose pretty high near the top of the tank and was fairly flat.

here i made a hammock 6 inches long (the leaf itself, thats maybe double of the one u buy at the store!!) from a silk plant leaf (it was free but if u dont have it u can find some at a dollar store with alot of various plant types, a dollar for a bundle of plants) and again a suction cup (a pack of 4 for a dollar)from the dollar store, luckily this one had a hole in the center already if not, drill of poke a hole in it to attach the stem part of the plant. so for 2 bucks u can make a few hammocks. this leaf had no metal wire but its strong plastic stem could be shaped ever so slightly to what form i liked :) heres a pic, my betta also decided to start building his bubble nest above it. if your betta doesnt exhibit laying on top on leaves/plants then it will probably be a waste of money to get one. but u can train him to do it by feeding him only on top the hammock. got mine to eat the pellet off my finger too :)
