One thing I often use as "betta caves" are coffee mugs!! I have like a ZILLION of them - LOL - and it's just my husband & I at home now since the kids have all grown & gone. Hey - maybe that's why I have so many fish and four birds!!!

My kitchen is done in an apple theme so my kitchen betta - Betta Crocker :) - has a mug with apple decorations on it. Not that I have ever seen him use it, but it looks cute! And mugs are safe, always smooth and CHEAP (especially at yard sales)!!!

This is what he has right now. He hasn't seemed to be hurting himself on it. The inside of it is smooth and the outside is just a little rough but he really likes it.

That's cute, but are those plastic plants attached to it? He could hurt his fins on those if they are.

Yeah. v.v It was literally the safest decoration at the store at the time. I've got silk plants coming in the mail soon and I'm going to find a different cave thing hopefully when I go back to the store.

Coffee mugs are a ton cheaper & there are some really cute ones out there! :)

Maybe you can just pull the plastic plants off the cave? And I can see where he MIGHT scrape himself on the outside of it. :(

O_O Is it common for a betta to zip around really fast and seem jumpy while swimming?

Question

First time Betta daddy here too! Mine did that yesterday when we added a silk plant and took out the pokey one. He settled after about 20 minutes. Now, like you, I am totally paranoid about his behaviour! By the end of the day he decided to move to the heater and stays there. He used to hang out on the other side of the tank. The water is 79f. Had this guy for about a week now. I try not to look at him too much, he does know when I show feeding is coming!

My newbie question is about my filter. It came with the betta kit, it's doing its job but I feel the flow is too strong for my guy. Sometimes he hangs in it and then blows into the side of the tank. I want to baffle it a bit but if I do the filter will overflow. Should I get a smaller adjustable one?

I don't want to do too much to fast as i don't want to stress him out.

His name is Livingston BTW.
