Questions & Answers

7 Customer Questions

Do you offer the Extra Large size for Zoo Med Log?
Answer by ChewyFeb 02, 2018
At this time, this log only comes in one size.

what is the smallest size of tank will this piece fit in?
Answer by ChewyJul 14, 2018
This product measures 4.25 x 2 x 1.75 inches. As long as your tank dimensions are larger than this, it will work. Dimensions are listed as length by width by height.

would this also work for a small ball python?
Answer by ChewyOct 07, 2018
This product is not suitable for reptiles such as ball pythons. This log is made for aquatic fish such as bettas.

How do you sand down any sharp edges?
Answer by ChewyJul 31, 2022
If there are any sharp edges on the ceramic log you can get some fine sandpaper and sand them down.

Sturdy but unrealisti

The paint job on this makes it look more like a piece of waste.

Great for loaches, plecos and small fishes

This ceramic log is extremely popular among my fin babies. I would definitely purchase a longer log if it were available.

Okay but concerned

I like the log but there are some sharp spots that I am concerned will injure my betta's fins. There are also two sharp bumps I am concerned about for the same reasons.

Betta logs not worth it

I purchased a total of six of these logs for 2 5 gallon tanks and a 30 gallon tank. Unfortunately all but one was broken and my betta fish wants nothing to do with it. I ended up buying a similar one in plastic from my local pet store which is just a bit larger than this ceramic one. They break too easy and have sharp edges and I do not recommend anybody get one for their beta. If they don't break during shipping they could be great for shrimp or small Cory catfish but I don't recommend them.

It must be dremeled first.

I was very disappointed when I received this because it had horrible, jagged, sharp edges inside of it. I expected much more from Zoo Med. Fortunately my dad has a good Dremel tool and was able to wear down all the sharp edged. There is no other way I would consider putting this in with my expensive imported bettas. There is a saying to run a panty hose along the edges of your Betta ornaments to see if they snag or tear. Once I wash it off and put it in I'm sure they will like it as all my Bettas in the past love little caves, hideouts and hamster tubes.

great, but you’ll need to do some sanding

Love this log (and so does my betta fish)! I was worried it might be too small, bit it’s the perfect size for a male betta. It did have some rough edges around the punched holes, but I just gave it a good sanding and cleaning before giving it to my little dude and it’s worked out perfectly. :)

Didn’t look at nice as the floating log

This log doesn’t look as realistic as the floating log and it isn’t at large. I was very disappointed and would just stick with the floating log for your betta.

Discovery fun

My beta fish has been exploring his new toy log, hiding under then finally resting inside! Fun to watch as his discovery progresses.
