About the rust... even those "betta leaf hammocks" sold at the LPS get rusty. There's a wire that ataches the leaf to the suction cup. I actually think they don't sell them anymore bc I haven't seen them in a while.
i know that my local petsmart still sells those zoomed hammocks. the wire just allows you to bend the leaf to a shape you like. i have two. for the first one, i covered the whole wire and the base of the leaf with sealant. for my second, i took the wire out, but there was still some at the base, so i just covered the base in sealant.
some say that the leaf falls out of the suction cup, but honestly, if you push it hard enough into the opening, it should stay in. just some fyi, if you want to buy those and don't mind fiddling with some sealant. (: i think it's a great idea, just some poor execution by zoomed.
