I got the betta leaf hammock from PetCo. I actually thought this was the one without the metal piece since I didn't see it from the get go.
I took the leaf out to clean it and noticed some brown residue (rust?) inside the rubber suction cup as well as rust around the plastic tip (almost looks kinda burned) that usually goes inside the hole of the suction cup. I noticed then that it indeed did have a wire.
Is this horribly dangerous?
What should I do? It's by betta's favorite resting place so what would be a good replacement if need be?
She is in a 5 gallon unfiltered tank with 1 weekly water change.
