I have the hammock and the most my little guy will do is hover over it when he checks out one of his plants. He tends to sleep under a plant on the floor of the tank. He probably wouldn't like it if I removed it though.

i have one for my betta. the wire does stick out if you bend it into a different shape. i didn't want it to rust or have my betta get injured, so i took it out, bought some aquarium sealant, put a BUNCH of sealant on the wire (i seriously made sure there wasn't any wire touching the water, haha), then waited about 3 days and put it back in.

my first betta really loved it, he liked to sleep on it at night, and chill on it during the day when he was bored. after he died, i got another betta, and he does the same thing. c:

This little leaf hammock thing sounds really interesting, but I agree that it will have to be worked on before putting it in with the betta itself. I'd be devastated if something were to happen to my baby because of a "leaf hammock."

I may get one of these when I get my first betta, to see if he likes it.

My betta loves the hammock. She has never had any problems with the hammock. Just recently I added a moss ball, which is her new daily toy.

I got a hammock for my first betta and he loved it. I didn't even think of making sure it was sealed and sure enough, it rusted. So it was rehomed to the trash can. :( Since I've upgraded to a bigger tank I got Beast a floating log. When I scrub it, paint does come off. When it is sitting in the tank though, I don't see anything floating. Beast loves it and seems to be in good health.

so far i haven't noticed that there are any metal parts with the log to develop rust .. the cause of the paint to come off is not rust

Have to ask; What is the wire even for? Could I just remove it completely?

It holds the leaf to the suction cup... the wire runs through the leaf so I dont think you can remove it
