Very nice! I have made some of those but instead of using suction cups I just fuse the ends of the mesh together (with a lighter). Where do you buy those suction cups?

Walmart. They're like...maybe $2 for a pack of four for small ones/. they have medium and larger sizes, but for the larger hammocks i plan to put stuff in i use two small ones so its balanced

I weave my fishing line back and forth and used flowers to cover teh knot so there's no fin catching issue.

I like that a lot!

None of my bettas so far have shown any interest in their hammocks. They love their floating logs but not the hammock. It's too bad because I find fish resting on them to be so darn cute!

It looks very nice!

Just a suggestion, I would cut an opening in the top so your betta can have easy access to the surface to breathe. Make sure the opening is big so your betta doesn't get stuck.

Good job!

All of mine simply sleep at the 'doorway' to get up and breathe, tho I was considering cutting an extra hole for this one. I always make sure they have ample space on both sides and keep it at the water's top level.
