NOTE: Before adding the suction cup into the tank, please clean the aquarium glass surface firstly, so that the suction cup will hold the bed for a longer period of time.
HOW TO INSTALL: Attach the suction cup to your tank about 3/4″ below the waterline, creating a resting place near the surface and hiding spot for your betta.
