Here’s the list;
Great Gifts For You & Your Betta
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.
Keep Your Betta Tank Clean & Clear
5. Betta Filter
Though not a toy for a Betta fish a filter is an important piece of equipment if you want to set up a Betta tank that will keep your Betta happy and healthy.
Not only will a filter keep your Betta’s tank clean the slow current it produces will provide some exercise for your Betta as they try to swim again the current. Just make sure it’s not too strong as this can harm your Betta’s delicate fins.
If you’re not really sure if you need a filter for your Betta, then I hope this guide will convince you.
6. Betta Balls (Marimo Balls)
Betta balls or Marimo balls are small balls made of green algae that once soak with water will sink to the bottom of your Betta’s tank.
Your Betta will love to poke and push these little balls around as they float and even when they are settled at the bottom.
You can learn more about the many benefits of Marimo balls by reading our post the best live plants for Betta fish that are easy to keep.
7. Betta Bed
As we mentioned before Betta fish love to rest near the top or your tank and just like the Betta hammock but instead it’s real.
That’s right this is a real leaf that will float and actually release special tannins which are beneficial for your Betta.
We recommend buying a few at a time as you will need to replace them after about two weeks. Most Betta Bed’s come in packs of 6 which will last 3 months.
Try Something New
8. Betta Fish Aquaponics and Betta Plants
If you have a green thumb or want to have fresh, lush, herbs and plants growing in your kitchen then you might be interested in setting up a mini aquaponics kit.
Aquaponics is a growing trend with urban farms popping up in almost every major city in North America.
You can be a part of this growing industry and combine it with your love of fishkeeping, with your very own mini aquaponics system.
9. Betta Accessories
There are so many things you can use to entertain your Betta fish the possibilities are endless. Things like Caves, Plants, Ping Pong balls and even laser pointer.
Did you know there is even a kit that teaches your Betta fish how to play with little soccer balls?
10. Betta Fish Treats
Lastly Betta fish love to eat, even with their tiny bellies they have a great appetite.
Why not give your little guy some of these treats to play with once in a while. For best results and ensure your Betta doesn’t become bloated try to only use treats once per week.
