The best and most used Betta "hammocks" around here are floating Anubias plants. They also provide topcover, shade and a place to hide.

You know what? That's what I'll do. Why not give him the real thing? Plus, it helps the tank.

Yeah. My Algernon has started using his anubias to lay on now instead of his hammock. Vardaman, on the other hand, still uses his hammock a lot! But I think that's because he is on the night stand and the hammock is on the tank closest to my bed. He likes to chill there next to me.

Kuddo's to whoever came up with this

I was browsing along looking for one thing and found another. Typical. At any rate I listed to someone on here and my bettas have been using the hammock I made, they also use it as a tunnel which is cool to watch them explore.

Put some moss on that and it would be a dark tunnel! I might steal this from you for Vardaman. He seems to like sleeping in dark places.

This is my new adventure so I'm sure I'm going to do more. It was just so cool to see them using it already. Someone on here described how to get them to keep the shape by boiling them.

Is it just floating there? Or how do you have it attached?

Mine has one, and I have had no issues with it. He doesn't rest on it, but builds his bubble nests around it instead of the cup I gave him ha.

I had one but Perseus never seemed to use and I took it out after I got some live plants and he loves to rest in his floating Anacharis. He really loves his floating plants the other day I was watching him and all of a sudden he darted up and poked the Anacharis really hard and kept poking it till a snail fall out of the plant...lolololol It was so funny I dont think he likes to share his plants with snails..lol !
