DIY Betta Caves and Tunnels?

Today I was just looking at random videos on youtube of betta tanks, and then I realized I don't have a good hiding spot for my betta! Instead of going out and buying some, I decided it'd be a good idea to make some . So, got any ideas to pitch?

This is a bit unoriginal but you could just put a coffee mug in on it's side. It works well especially if the mug is a dark colour :)

a lot of people use terra cotta pots, just have to make sure to either plug the drainage hole or you can just break the entire bottom out, otherwise curious little fishies can get their head stuck

Ooh ooh PVC pipes! Darker colours would be more comforting if he was trying to hide :D

Great idea! I'll sand off the parts where I cut it so it'll be nice and smooth(:

My fish loves his coconut cave . I also made a cave out of a glass olive jar..I used aquarium sealant to cover it with gravel so it blends in...this can be done with PVC pipe as well I believe.
