Let your betta sleep like a log with the Zoo Med Floating Betta Log. This nature-inspired aquarium accessory makes for a perfect place for your betta to sleep, play, breed, feed, or blow a bubblenest. It features an opening on the top that makes it easy for your pal to eat without leaving his cozy log nest. Designed to bring a touch of nature into your betta’s enclosure, it helps reduce boredom from captivity and stimulates natural betta behaviors. There’s no set up or assembly to use―simply place in your aquarium, and let your pal naturally find this floating sanctuary.
Provides a perfect place for your betta to sleep play, breed, feed, or blow a bubblenest.
Patent pending floating design features a “feeding hole” so your betta can eat while inside.
Helps reduce boredom from captivity and stimulates natural betta behaviors.
Inspired by bettas’ wild environment and designed to look naturally great in any betta enclosure.
To use, simply place in your aquarium out of the package, and let your pal find it on his own.
Remove from package and rinse with warm water. Gently lace your Floating Betta log in your Betta’s home (minimum 2 gallon container size, otherwise it will not fit). It may take your Betta a day or two to get use to his new Floating Betta Log. Placing his food in the top feeding hole will encourage him to use the log.
This betta log is nice, but I have not used it yet because the size is very large. It would work great in an aquarium that is five gallons or bigger, but all of my tanks are 2 and 2.5 gallons. Since the majority of betta tanks on the market are very small in size, I was shocked to see the big size of this log. Eventually I will try it in my 2.5 gallon tank, but never in any of the 2 gallon tanks I have because there will not be enough swimming space for my bettas with this toy inside their tank.
Got Another Good Log

This single hole log is so much better than the double holes I got in a store. This one floats as described. Fits quite nicely. My new guy has poked his nose in so far. He's still exploring the tank itself as well.
My Betta Ash LOVES this log

My Betta fish LOVES this Betta Log. He just hangs around in it. I was not going to get this log at first then thought why not. I am so happy that I did. My Betta Ash LOVES this little log. It just floats around the top of the water. I like the little peep hole in the top it makes it easy to feed the Betta so the food does not float all over the tank. At feeding time Ash will run up and into the log to get food.
Bettas love these logs

My bettas love to swim through or just hang out and nap in these logs. They don't seem to fade at all although like everything else in the aquarium, they do accumulate algae so I just rinse it off once in awhile.

The floating log is Khal’s favorite toy in his tank. He likes to hide out and with the feeding hole in the top he’s able to eat in peace. It also helps to waste less food as it all stays in one place.
Floating Betta log too large
on Jul 6, 2018
Although this log was described for use in a 2G tank or larger it overwhelms my 3G Betta tank. Betta's need to breathe on the surface and this log took up way too much top space. I will call tomorrow to see if I can return it. Even if I had a larger tank it seems way overscaled for what it is.
The best thing in their tank!

Oscar and Uno absolutely love their floating log. Each betta fish has a 3 gallon tank and this is the perfect size all the other ones that I saw in the stores which is too big for a small tank .This is perfect
They took to it first day, I put a pinch of food on the inside and a front of the opening and they went right in .
They sleep in it , swim through it ,they just love it!
My bettas love them!

I have two of these and both bettas love to hide in them. The price on Chewy is the best I have found. Highly recommend!
His Favorite Hangout
on Feb 1, 2018
My betta loves this litte log. He's in there every morning when I feed him. He appears much more active and content. He does prefer to still eat in the open though. I'm getting another one for my other large bowl (2.5 gallon). I tried using the log in my 5 gallon tanks, but the agitation from the filter made it move around too much and my guy in there just flared at it and hid in the corner, so I bought the ceramic sinking log for him, which works well. Four stars on this floating log because I had to remove several stray bits of sharp plastic that would have cut fins had I left them on.
A Bit Too Big For 3.5 Gallon
on Feb 2, 2018
The box says use on 2 gallon tanks and up, but I'd go so far as to suggest not using it on any tank under 5 gallons. It just takes up a lot of space at the top in my 3.5 gallon (which is pretty much the smallest tank I'm willing to put a betta in, anyway). It also keeps getting pushed around by my filter (which has a very low flow), which results in it bumping into my betta leaf. I don't have a fish in the tank, yet, so that's a problem I can likely solve with a suction cup and some fishing line, but it's still a bit annoying.
