The Magical Mysterious Cave Place

So I spent about an hour and a half cleaning up this old glass tea bottle for Aquarius's tank to be a little cave for him. After I got it all spiffed up and fishy safe I sank it into the depths of his watery home and left him alone to play with it and here is what I got.


The magical mysterious cave place...dun dun duuuun

At first he tried to swim through it because he could see through it and assumed it wasn't solid. Seemed legit but didn't work out. So he tried swimming under it and that proved to be futile as well. Upon further inspection he found an opening...could this be? There was a way inside?


It's bigger on the inside...TARDIS???


It's like a little club house. Oh no I got lost how do I get back out of here?


Oh I see now.

So that is his new toy, he loves it and keeps swimming in and out of the bottle.

I love it! What a great idea. I'll have to see what glass jar I've got around that I can scrub out and add to Balthazar's tank.

Thanks, and no Aquarius hasn't panicked over it, only at first because he had no idea how to get inside. Now he drifts in and out all he likes and just being chill. I'm thinking of next time letting a little air bubble be in their and float some duckweed. Then it's like a real underwater cave with oxygen at the surface. Of course I would have to change out the air for new air every few days. At least then he could breath and stay there longer if he really wanted to.

I'm really tempted to try this in my two newer setups...we always have spare glass jars from pasta sauce or hot sauce floating around he kitchen because my dad likes o use them as drinking glasses. xD I bet I could steal a couple....

I would say go for it, my guy seems to just LOVE it. And snapple bottles work too but you have to get the sticker gunk and the ink off it. There is printed black ink on the glass best taken off with rubbing alcohol and then soak it in hot hot hot water for a while and rinse about 6 times for safty measures. I soaked the bottle in boiling water to also get the glue stuff off it and then scrapped it off with a knife and boiled again.
