Yeah it is. I tied it together with some seweing thread; you have to tie it really tight. :3

Ah ok. I wondered if you used fishing line or something similar. Thanks!

I am looking for a floatable object for my fishies. And I don't want to pay $11 for a floating, painted log! So thanks for sharing your pics!

RowdyBetta - You rock! I picked up a sheet of plastic mesh today (for less than a dollar), cut it to size, and sewed the edges together.

I made three of these tonight, and all three of my fish went straight into it! Of course, my 4th guy is jealous. I'll get to his tomorrow.

I don't know if you trimmed the edges, but I did this, since I didn't want any sharp parts to catch on their fins. But it worked really well. I thought I had monofilament (nylon) fishing line but I couldn't find it, so I used regular sewing thread instead. I wasn't sure it would hold, but it worked just fine!

Yay! My guys have a new toy! (Well, three of them do. Tahiti will have to wait until tomorrow to get his.)
