ping pong balls sound great! :) I almost bought a leaf hamock today.... buuuut I got a live plant instead. Legos sound pointy, knowing Izume he'd poke his eye out! LOL what would be cooool is having one of those hamster tunnel sets in a fish tank XD
I have seen pictures of modular tanks, and even tanks that have long bridges between large tanks suspended from the ceiling and walls in a house!
Legos aren't pointy unless you make them. Like, if it's suspended in the middle of the tank, and is just anchored down, Its not
Going to be like a rock. It will sway back and forth and move if you touch it... Like, say a Betta runs Into it, it'll move. Goes through it: it'll move a bit. It won't be harder than any other ornament. And if it's a real problem but you like the color and design, glue them all together with hot glue, super glue (i heard that's fine, I haven't tried it though) or aquarium safe silicone.
Then, for added, you could sand it down. But they won't catch panty hose unless you have some really ratty tatty legos like the dogs been chewing on and the baby had in it's diaper or whatever. It'd be easy to make rings with it though.
I found some old xmas decorations. The shiny balls you hang on the tree. Mine is plastic so I cleaned them well with vinegar and now I float them in the tank. Ive got a few different coloured ones and the boys love it :D
I forgot where i read it but dry erase markers! I was just drawing on my tanks and they loved it! even my hercules who is quiet. he was at the front of the tank studying the lines and following them. and luna was going from star to star and got pissed like literally freaking mad when i erased them in front of her it was so cute. Even my high strung norbert paused to eye up the fancy way i wrote his name.
Aw! That sounds awesome MaggieLynn. I think I have some dry erase markers somewhere, I'm gonna go find them for Tiberius. I also want to get a leaf hammock for him as well.
Oh, you may have noticed this already but sometimes they have favorite decoration pieces. I know I recently got Tiberius a house that is a ceramic shark that is large so I had to take out a lot of the old decorations (I had little mermaid betta safe toys). Soon after he seemed a little down in the dumps. Thinking back I remembered he always hung out around the Ursala toy in there. So I cleaned it and put it back and now he seems just as happy again, even doing circles around her! I didn't know they could get attached to an object like that lol

Reason: misspelling :P
After reading this I started drawing pictures on the tank... Alpha was wierded out at first but I think he had fun... we started drawing tophats and glasses and he would push his face against it giving us a good laugh. His favorite it seems is a line of bubbles.
On my lunas QT I wrote her name all fancy and made a moon with stars and she went from star to star thoughtfully looking at them and then I erased them and she just spazed out like why did you do that?!?! so i put them back and she calmed down going from star to star again. and on Freds up near the food door on the hood i wrote food with an arrow going up and as i drew it and after he looked at the word and then looked up following the arrow, my quiet guy hercules even is up at the front of his tank more after i drew on it.
I bought a PVC pipe elbow at Home Depot, washed it really well and put it in Melvin's bowl. He really enjoys it. He swims through it and hangs out in it a lot. The one I got is about 1-1/4" in diameter on the inside. They come in different shapes and sizes. I may add another on later.
