I will say no just because the edges are super sharp and it can easily tear your bettas fins

I used mega bloks to create little caves for my divided 10 gallon and havent had any issues yet...I cleaned them really well by letting them soak in the sink full of water i heated up on the stove and I added a little vinegar and rinsed them well afterwards.


Watch out for sharp edges on the kits though.

I don't think the edges of them are really that sharp. Just check the more pointy bits that come in certain kits c: Also make sure they wont leech in water.

A lot of people have done them before, you just need to make sure that they wont snag any fins

Here's a link to a thread with a few pictures of legos in peoples tanks and someone who did use them and talking about them ^^

Yeah, but make sure you don't use any pieces with a face painted on or if it's a sticker. I heard that would harm the fish!

Lego hasn't used toxic materials outside of the rubber pieces for about twenty years. There is still some residual vinyl chloride in the rubber.

I saw a plan once for an air-power mill to make a geared machine run under-water but I'd think that'd simply be a betta eater.
