Legos?

Hey guys,

So I have a really odd question. Yesterday I was talking to some of my friends and we got to talking about fish; one of my friends said she's thought about setting up a tank with no fish but just a lego sculpture in it. Whether she does it or not is another matter completely, but it got me thinking. Could one make a lego cave or something of the like and then seal it like crazy with clear silicon, with a bit more around the sharp edges and corners to prevent fins from getting torn? I've never worked with silicon, so I'm not sure how that would go. I'd love to hear any input y'all may have!

Thanks,
Leah

That sounds like a great idea and theme if it could work. If you cover it in silicon it probably would work. I've looked at other forums and the question has been asked and many members believed it could work. The only problem is, I think legos float.. Maybe the silicon would way it down? It is a great idea though..

Hm... May have to try it sometime then. My friend said she may be interested in getting a fish if I'd help her with it, so that may be an option. I wonder if they float because the bottom is hollow and therefore filled with air - maybe I could drill a small hole in the top of each brick or something and fill it with sand before sealing. *sigh* These are the things that keep me up at night. I need a life

I say it would work just be careful of sharp spots and chemicals.

Covering with silicone is not as easy as it sounds, haha. Lego is aquarium safe. But they float so you'll need a way to make sure it sinks down.

I remember a long time ago someone was asking the same thing...I think he went ahead and it was okay.
