Well in Canada curlers would be people sliding heavy stones across a sheet of ice while other people ran beside it and swept the ice, but I'm thinking that's prolly not it lol. Hair curlers, maybe?

Yea I don't think it was the sport curling hahaha. Hair curlers probably, but I personally have never tried those. The ones my mom used to use I think they had little spikes on the, though. But that was 20 years ago, they've probably changed since then lol.

I have a little mirror I got for a dollar at Walmart, I let Captain Barbossa flare at it for a minute or two a couple times a day. I don't let him see his reflection for very long though, to keep him from getting stressed out.

Yesterday I purchased some ping pong balls and floated one in his tank last night... lets just say it was an interesting experiment!
he eyeballed it, got angry at it... then he would swim up to it, then swim back and look at me...he kept doing this for about 10 mins!
whats the best way to get them used to new toys?
I took it out after about 15 mins and thought I would try him with it again tonight.

I just cut my Nana plant in half, and am letting the one half float on top of the tank and my betta is loving playing in that.
