My betta was inside the log in less than 2 hours. I found it has a second great use....when I do a water change I pour the fresh water thru the hole in the top of the log and it spreads the water nicely without stirring up the gravel and plants. I love this thing.
Our fish was a well meaning surprise gift with only a fake plant in his home. Now with the log he has a place to retreat to at night to sleep, and has built his first bubble nest in it! When it drifted against a tank wall he wasn’t very interested since an entry was blocked, but once we made it stay in place he immediately began to use it.
It is cute and natural looking, and we plan to keep it in once his home becomes a planted tank with other fish.
Floating logs are my favorite betta decoration because they look natural in a planted tank, and all my bettas like them. Sometimes they only hang out near them, but it's really cute when they sleep in the logs. The opening on top is really nice too. One of my male bettas puts a bubble nest in there occasionally, but it's really helpful for feeding. The surface agitation from sponge filters or flow from how filters can blow the pellets or frozen food away as soon as I put it in, and a few of my bettas will just not eat the food if it's not on the surface, or I can't tell if they're actually eating. I've trained my difficult bettas to eat in the floating log so I can tell if they're eating and how much
Bob-o loves it!
