Betta Toys

There was a post a while back about someone who used fishing lures (without hooks obviously) as toys for their betta. They'd put them in the tank and then the betta would play and attack it. Has anyone ever tried this with their betta/ what kind of lure would work best?

Thanks!

ive never heard of that but i do the same with real food. just so he's doesnt feal teased when he finds out the lure is not real and so he wouldnt hurt him (emotionaly and phisically ) you would need a really small lure for the little guy

what i do, is i put the very tip of my finger in the water and zoom it all around the tank. bagel goes NUTS and assaults my finger and when she finally catches it and bited me liek eight times, i drop in some flakes or a pellet. meal time fun yay!

I've heard of people putting ping pong balls in and since they float the betta goes crazy chasing it around.

Mine also like to attack my finger and chase me away while flaring up, I pretend to run away when they attack and that makes them feel like big bettas :D
Also they love to play with marimo balls! If your balls are happy enough they wil make bubbles and bettas like to pick at them and chase the bubbles upwards.
They also like fresh almond leaves that have not sunk yet, they push them around.
Bettas are sooooo cute and overflowing with personality! I love them!
