Interesting hidey place

I was at the local PetSmart looking for meal, erm, ghost shrimp and ran across this little item. It was on the end cap of the reptile aisle and labeled as a Little Crab Castle for hermit crabs. It is smooth with no sharp edges and has four holes on the top. It would be a fun project if you are so inclined.. maybe cover the exterior with some sort of gravel or stone or even substrate. I would imagine it would take a good amount of aq sealer but still worth a shot don't you agree? You could also anchor a plant of some sort to the top too.

Pics attached for your viewing enjoyment. I am open to suggestions, I want to experiment and try something interesting.

As long as you cover up the holes. You could easily end up with a stuck Betta.

Oh those holes are small, only 1/4 inch and can easily be filled.

That would look cool if you had some fake or live plants coming out of the holes on the top.

I had been thinking of buying one of those, actually! I think a substrate and plant top would look really nice.

That'd look great in a tank, sealed or with maybe plants or substrate on the top! :DDD

I had something very similar to that in one of my tanks. My fishie loved it! He especially loved sitting on top in the middle of those tab thingies.

Looks neat but yah fill the holes because what may seem small to you isn't for a betta and he/she will try to wiggle through it and get stuck.

I made a cave once out of Great Stuff expanding foam :p it easily carved and shaped and it has a great rocky like texture. I think you could do a lot with that cave make it look like a rock formation... I think I am tempted to get one.... I would defiantly think of covering it with the same gravel or substrate as the rest of the tank.

Is Great Stuff non-toxic? I would be afraid of that making my tank into a vast wasteland of death.. It smells pretty rancid, I have used it to fill holes and such.
