Leaf Hammock?

I was thinking about getting a leaf hammock for my new betta.

Do they work well? Do you reccomend them?

I've never heard of a leaf hammock. I googled them and they're adorable, but I don't see how they could be practical. Fish love to hide, Bettas are no different. :)

It depends upon the individual betta whether or not they like it. Here's a recent thread with other user experiences as well as important notes about safety:

http://www.bettafish.com/showthread.php?t=76730

There is a danger the wire may hurt or kill a fish (no joke) so you should take precautions when using hammocks. The thread I've linked to goes into this in detail.

I have a hammock in my tank that I've gooed up with aq sealant as a precaution. Flambé seems to like it, but not as much as other bettas. This of course could be because I keep changing his tank around and there's so much new stuff to explore, lol :D

My betta LOVES his leaf hammock! The suction cup quit working so I had to rig up a new one. I cannot say that every betta will use it but mine lounges in it all the time. It is ADORABLE! I got him to start using it by feeding him on it.

I made mine. I have two of them, and the fish who "own" them love them!

These are the best I could do for pictures. But I am sure you get the idea.
