I just recently purchased a Betta Floating Log and it was just delivered a few minutes ago and so it hasn't been put into Dean's tank yet. I was just wondering if anyone had some opinions about this item and if your beta actually likes it?
Hi, MissMittySmoke, my betta Rusty, showed no interest in it at all. Return it if your betta doesn't use it.
I bought mine on Monday from my local PetSmart and returned it today. Rusty is more intuned with pecking and flaring at his reflection on the right side of the tank. I also bought the ocean floor vinyl cling at my PetSmart today but it just didn't look right so I have to return this back too. At least I am getting to know the associates by name now at my PetSmart store in Oviedo.
It just shows you how our betta fishes are never satisfied no matter what we do for them. I was looking at some of the cave decor that are on the PetSmart website. Does anyone have a cave decor that their betta fish swims in and which one can you recommend for me to buy. Rusty is like a problem child.
I bought one for my betta and his tankmate guppies' yesterday, they all use them. I guess it all depends on the betta. However, some chip their coating off so you might want to scrub the log down with water and a little brush first and then put it in.
I use soft curlers in my tanks, I get them at a dollar store, some I weigh down with a little rocks and some I let float, my guys love them, the swim through ,they hide and I have one delta tail that sleeps in his like a bed it is so cute!!!also little plant pots are really cheap and they love them as caves
I got one for Es to give him something new to do. Don't care for how it looks with my aquascape, but Es loves it! I find him in and out if it all the time. Sometimes he likes to hang out underneath it too, or peek out from just inside it, which is really cute ;)
Definitely want to scrub it periodically as it seems to collect slime a bit easier than real items, just like any artificial decor; I use a toothbrush and do it in discarded tank water, but you could also use hot tap water then rinse in treated water.
