1. Floating Betta Log
The first Betta toy on our list is the floating log by Zoo Med.
This floating log is actually a real piece of driftwood that will float at the top of your Betta’s tank. Your Betta will love swimming through the hole and hiding under the shadow of the log.
One really cool feature of the log is that it has a hole in the top, just in case your Betta is hiding or sleeping you can just drop a pellet right into his bed for a late night snack.
Our only suggestion is to have a tank at least 2.5 gallons in size, for your Betta’s health and also to ensure you have enough room for the log.
2. The Betta Hammock
Our next cool Betta toy is the Betta Hammock. This is another great toy by Zoo Med that provides a place for your Betta to rest after a long day of excitement.
The simple design is just a small plastic leaf that attaches to the side of your tank with a suction cup.
For best results, place the Betta hammock near the surface of the tank, in the wild Betta fish love to rest near the surface of the water on leaves and twigs, this toy allows your pet Betta to do the same.
3. Ceramic Betta Log (Sinking)
Just like the floating log this ceramic log provides a great place for your Betta to hide an play in. The log is ceramic so it won’t float, but it’s a great looking toy and looks very real.
Combine this log with the Betta hammock or Betta balls and your tank will be an awesome home for your Betta.
4. Betta Mirror
The male Betta fish is very aggressive and will flare up at the sight of another male Betta.
The Betta Mirror is a great toy that will give the impression that another Betta is in the tank and cause your Betta to flare and dance.
For short periods of time, no more than 5 minutes, this can be beneficial as it can relieve some stress and get them moving.
A word of caution, if you do this too much it can actually cause more harm than good. We recommend no more than once every other day.
