My blue veiltail betta, Prince Kaida (the name Kaida means 'little dragon' in Japanese; it was the only Asian name I liked that I could find.) is currently living like a king in his 5-gallon Aqueon MiniBow desktop aquarium with an 8" white ribbon plant (I think) and a silk plant...I think it would seem boring to swim around in the empty space in the middle. I want to add some toys, but I'm unsure what would be safe for His Majesty.
I already want to put a ZooMed Floating Betta Log in a corner with an airstone lined up with the entrance (bubble wall~!), and I want to get a nice, colourful parakeet ladder for him to play in, but all the plastic ones I could find had mirrors on them.
Should I nick the ladder idea or just make a cover for the mirror, and pull it up to give him some exercise every now and again?
Have you all any creative ideas for toys? Also, bells--would those be any fun for a fish underwater?
