Talking a shot to see if anyone here had the ability, for a charge, to 3D print longer anti-stranding legs for the Instapark Betta. It doesn’t look like there are any available off-the-shelf options. The problem to solve is that my sun shelf is deep enough that the extension legs won’t stop the Betta from beaching itself. Lowering the water level isn’t an option as I’d have to drop it over three inches.

@Katodude crafted his own that ziptied to the existing legs.

Yep I ended up crafting my own legs. Used these:


Cut off two 9” pieces and filed flats on them until I got a good friction fit in the existing leg holes. Problem solved for $8. And the legs are rustproof Fiberglas and round to limit drag. Also easily replaced with no mods to the unit itself.
