Then I see this smidge if color on the bottom of the bowl laying flat UNDER THE ROCKS!
My betta, Louis, used to be in a 1g too. He would wedge himself between the gems I used on the bottom and that is where he would sleep! Crazy bettas!

It was so funny after the fact though
That's great! Made me think of one of those sticky hand things haha!

My weirdest experience was when I couldn't find my bulldog plec. My husband noticed his fin hanging out my cana snails shell, my snail had closed down on him, he had a habit of annoying her. We had to take the snail out of my tank & gently pull her trapdoor, I thought he was dead so l put him in kitchen roll, he started flapping about! Put him back in the tank his end of his tail was bitten off, 2 fins & his belly was blood red. My husband wanted to euthanize him but I didn't. And he survived that was 6mths ago & his tail has grown back. He was one Lucky boy

my dwarf gourami got stuck under a drift wood branch. he was stuck under to the point where he was literally buried by sand and under a driftwood branch. luckily I found him before he was there too long to suffocate.

I had a rope fish get stuck in a piece of coral. It was part of a bigger piece that my parents had brought back from Mexico forever ago. And I can't get my dad to let me take it out >.<

I've read multiple places Bettas are known for trying to go through holes that are too small for them, get stuck & die. I thoroughly check any deco to make sure that can't happen.
