well i made the mistake of buying it when i bought Chum-Fu cuz it was a dollar and the lady at the pet store said it would keep him happier. Now after joining this site I realized my 2 mistakes: buying the zoo med bed and listening to the pet store lady

If it's specifically made for betta fish though wouldn't they take the precautions to avoid those situations?

Yes but they still make .5 gallon 'tanks' Specially for bettas and we all know they are not nearly big enough. They also put hard plastic plants that rip up the bettas fins in these betta kits.

If half the product makers would do research they wouldn't recall quite so many products every year.

i have one of the store bought ones and i just pulled the wire out of mine after reading the scary stories about them on here. i just pulled it right out and stuck the leaf back in the suction cup... only difference is now its not quite as stiff but still holds schneider up just fine and i dont have to worry about the danger

I think it must depend on which leaf you buy. I don't recall which brand I purchased but mine doesn't seem to have any sort of wire in it at all. I believe the stem is just made of a rigid but flexible plastic.
