algae jars would make great caves! :)

sake cups would be great too, would be a neat oriental style tank, which I like :)

I love the martini glass idea! I went out to buy some right after I read this thread(as well as some glass stones to put in them. Now I'm trying to figure out how to make a fake toothpick with olives (especially one that won't tear fins).

I also have plastic coconut cups that I got at a party store years ago. I filed down the rim because it was a little rough. The opening is sorta wide so i put a plant of to one side of the opening to block it a little and make the fish feel a little more hidden.

I was also thinking that a picture frame (just the empty frame, no pictures or glass) leaned against a wall would look neat.

Coffee Cups / Mugs make cute caves.

A picnic table cloth makes a nice background

Some people even make lego caves! (I hear it's hard to make them sink though)

Empty flower pots for caves.

Colored glass cups.

I've seen some people use those mini piggy banks (They usually make extra holes)

Marbles

Glass figurines

PVC pipes and attack rocks to it to make a nice cave

I once even saw a "Princess" Themed tank and there was a glass high-heel in it.


Have fun and be creative!

i used a pair of candle holders as caves... one is real neat, and Scout adores it. the other is clear, one of those scented rock holders. i cleaned it REALLY well before using it. Ichi liked it.... But grew bored of it.

i've also used a fish bowl as a cave~ Zidane loved it, and would build HUGE bubble nests in it.

What about the half coconuts made for reptiles? Cut it open more and get moss growing on it.
