DIY rock cave

I have been looking for a little cave for my 3 gallon to replace the mug..and haven't been able to find one I really like...Last night I was cleaning up the fridge and tossed a jar of olives...there was only one left in there..(WHO DOES THAT!?)
then it came to me...I CAN USE THAT AS A CAVE! So..I cleaned it up really well and put it in his 3 gallon...He really loves it...However..I wanted to offer him a little more privacy since the jar is clear...So..I found my tube or aquarium sealant I had leftover from building dividers and grabbed up some gravel and went to work!









Hopefully he will love it.

Thanks! I got the idea from a tutorial I seen online..They used PVC pipe. I never have PVC pipe though...So the glass jar worked well enough..haha....

niiice, I also need an extra cave since the skull cave my fish had was taken over by "Slimes from another woooorld" ~(*o*~) so he doesn't go there anymore xD

might do something like that as well.

Thanks! I will take photos of it in the tank.I just glued the rocks on this morning so I am going to let the aquarium sealant cure for a day or so...and then I might soak it...Then It will be added to my lil fishes 3 gallon....


I also made a coconut cave...I have been feeling all DIY lately..
aquarium sealant is cool stuff to have...




I may cover that coconut in moss eventually... I should be adding it to my 10 gallon tomorrow.
