anyone ever heard of a betta bed or shelf for the tank?

I am trying to find something flat that can be suction cupped to the wall for the betta to sleep on.

He used to love to sleep between the heater holder rings, but the new heater is on 86 treating ich, so he won't hang there.

was wondering if anyone has ever seen one anywhere....... basically, something flat, about 3 inches wide and 4 inches long that would lie horizontally in the tank, perhaps have a 90 degree brackett-type device that could be mounted into one or two suction cups.

just a thought.......

One of those suction-cup-on soap dishes for the shower.

I think they make little things like that specifically for bettas anyway, but crepe has an excellent idea. Thanks, I have been wondering this same thing myself

Mine sleeps on top of my cave. Not in it, on top of it.

I don't have a betta myself but curiosity got the better of me and I did a Google search. It turned this up: WARNING: Zoo Med Betta Bed Leaf Hammock

One lady on here gets the soap dishes, and then puts moss in it, to make the little bed. They do make things specifically for bettas, but they are a little more spendy.

You could also use a coral frag rack, then you have holes to tie moss too.
