Home made hiding spots for beta's?

Does anyone know of any kind of home made things to make for a beta house?

other than that you could try driftwood, peices glued together (fish safe glue of course) or even rocks for that matter (rinsed or bleached to sanitize)

bad idea to add that as the starfish have some kind of chemical in them to ensure that they stay that way for a while

Definitely avoid the starfish. A live one needs salt water, a dead one will just fall apart in your tank.

The flowerpots are a good idea. You can also get resin decorations that are like small castles, logs, or caves that work great. You could also buy some aquarium sealant and glue together some slate to make caves. There are other threads that will be able to tell you how to treat any rocks you want to use in your aquarium. Also, driftwood and live (or silk) plants can provide good cover for a betta. Avoid plastic plants though, as they can easily tear a betta's delicate fins.

I heard that if you boil half of a coconut and remaove all meat and hair bettas love it. You could cut out a little hole for him. Just make sure no jagged edges. I think it looks really cute in aquariums.
