What a great idea those are neat and most Bettas love to have something floating like that they can swim though. Thanks for sharing !

I spray painted one of the mesh tubes today with Krylon paint. (It's supposed to be aquarium safe.) I let it dry all day, rinsed it off, and it's now in Miami's tank. Will let you know if he prefers his new green tube, or his original white one.

I also spray painted one of Tahiti's PVC pipes. So far, he's been ignoring it, but he usually likes caves, so we'll see....

Just cut a section of plastic canvas, and sew the narrow ends together with fishing line.

I have a lot of work to do. I didn't want to do it, so I redid Miami's tank instead. (I am a great procrastinator.)

Check out his green Krylon spray painted floating tube. Yes, he's about to swim into it.

Three of my guys love those plastic mesh tubes!

(The 4th one is my high maintenance fish. His favorite activity is ripping his fins off. *sigh*)
