hmmm i thought it was plastic... it bows down a lot lol so maybe it is, i didnt realize they made them with metal thoughAll of them have metal, it's what keeps the plastic leaf from bowing down.
thats so cute! haha hopefully antione will start using his soon. i think maybe hes still getting used to the tank. he used to just chill out on the sunctioncup holding my heater and now hes been spending a lot of time in each corner, he still darts away from me when i get close though haha so i think hes just getting accustomed to his new home hes probly so used to that tiny cup by nowSid loves his to bits. He slouches on it all the time, and hangs his head off to say hi when he can't be bothered getting up. Haven't had it long, but I'm watching it for signs of degrading. In which case, I'll run out and get another one for him :grin:. He likes his floating plants, too, but it's the hammock he likes to sleep in.
ahhh! the powers and uses of plastic canvas! love it! Thanks for the idea!I make my own Betta hammocks
you keep the flakes as a treat? and ive thought about getting live food... but it just looks so gross haha and im not entirely sure how that all works. but he started eating the flakes too after you fed him mosquito larva? and that name is so cute hahaYup. The fussy bugger would NOT eat the flakes I bought. I was all freaking out.. then Sid got hold of a mosquito, and NOM. He was okay, just fussy and settling in. You could try some live food he can chase, like brine shrimp. I found the chasing thing really got his appetite going, moreso than the pellets. He'll even eat the flakes now -- LOVES them :-? in fact, but I keep those as a treat, as they're not ideal.
Now he leaps up to bite my fingers.. like, out of the water. Fishus by name..
that seems like a really good idea i just bought mine for 2-3 bucks at petsmart. the edges look like they might be able to tear a bettas fins though? but im guessing you havent had a problem with that so i might just try itI make my own Betta hammocks from plastic craft mesh actually...
There is a hole under the leaf, you can make the metal come out of it (i did this) and pull it out with some pliers dont leave it in, when i pulled it out it was rusty an it was only in there for a week! ( mine could of just been faulty but plz dont take a chance. Pull the wire out! Or get a
New one pull out the wire then put it back in.
