I would advise you not to. If the golf ball has been used you don’t know what’s on it, you do not want to introduce anything undesirable to you tank. Also, when a betta is pushing a ping pong ball it is likely that it is trying to remove it from its territory, I don’t think fish really ‘play’ with one. Bettas are extremely interested in their environment however, so lots of plants and decorations for it to explore will keep yours occupied.
You can decorate your betta fish with the following items: Aquarium plants ( I love live plants, but you can use plastic)Betta hammocks. A small mirror on the side. Betta logs that are floating or sinking. Balls made of ping-pong. Moss balls made of fluval. Wrecks and caves. A fish training kit (yes, really).
How Do I Make My Betta Fish Fun? Put a ping pong ball in the aquarium and let it sit there for a few minutes… Be sure to use a mirror to observe your betta flare… Floating decorations can be introduced. Using dry erase markers, draw on the fish tank. Post-its or other pieces of paper should be stuck to the tank.
The majority, if not ALL ping pong balls are dangerous. They are a sports item and high quality balls are made of CELLULOID which is flammable, fragile, and toxic/poisonous! If you are looking for a toy for your betta; grab all your soda/water bottle lids and check for labels, if you see a triangle CHECK THE NUMBER and if it is HDPE/#2 or PP/#5 those are food grade, meaning they are safe for aquariums.
Ping pong balls are okay... But I'm not sure the betta would play with it all that much. You could try though. They also really like marbles if you have a bare bottom tank and my bettas love the floating betta log thing. They swim in and all around it all day.
How interesting...I did not know that and if I would have known that I would not have put ping-pong balls in with my Oscars for toys.....but it did not cause any problems for them and they carried them around in their mouths and I left them in the tank all day on most days.....however, this is in a 75g tank that got 80-100% water changes twice a week with massive filtration and that may have ...
7 years ago. You could put one in the tank, whether the fish would recognize it as a toy, who knows. Ping pong balls are super buoyant and light and will move around quickly in any kind of a current. They're currently made out of nitrocellulose (celluloid) and aren't toxic, just wash it and rinse it.
If you put a ping pong ball in the gas tank, you can get some issues with the engine, such as stalling and starting issues. In general, it’s pretty impossible to put a ping pong ball in the gas tank in modern car models. The reason is that the modern models have electric pumps with a filter. Such a filter can block the ping pong ball from ...
When people put ping pong balls in as toys, they freak out and bounce them because something floating and blocking in their insect hunting zone is death. They have to get rid of it or starve, and instinct makes them look like they are playing soccer. But a floating log is cover, and an ambush point, all at once. I don't think they get bored.
