Fun things for my Betta to swim with

I have my Betta all set up in his new home and have a Java fern along with a ceramic sign that reads "Beware of Jaws". Haha, but thats besides the point. I was curious about any household items I could clean and put in his tank for him to swim through, in, around, etc. You get the picture. Any ideas?

:)

well pretty much anything that you know is non-toxic, disolves and has no sharp edges no limits to creativity there really. it depends what kind of household you have LOL. usually the garden is a good place to look!

I found a rock outside of "O Charley's", and washed it of and now Lucky happily swims around it. :P

Hmmm, I need something small for him to hide in. I don't have a garden though or else I would use a clay pot.

( I would suggest crowding the tank with plants, unless the java fern takes THAT much room )

If you have enough surface area, some people used: ping pong balls for the bettas to nip at

- If your aquarium is large enough, you can use PVC pipe (thats LARGE in diameter), or for more colorful options, hamster tubing for the betta to swim in! Just make sure you don't make it too long so he can turn around and not get lost in there.

Those are only a couple I've heard of.

I just put a ping pong ball in there and he's circling it like a shark. Haha.

Some people use coffee mugs in place of pots if they don't have any.

one IMPORTANT thing to remember, do NOT wash anything off with SOAP of any kind, just steaming hot water
