Shark Cave FAIL

I'm REALLY disappointed.

A couple of months ago, I went to PetSmart with my boyfriend to get caves for the fish. I picked out a barrel for Hestia (now Nero), and my boyfriend picked out a shark cave because it was "manly" for Octo.

While doing a water change, I noticed that the paint had started to peel off the tail of the shark! I have no idea what kind of metal the shark is made of, but I'm furious that the paint is peeling! My fish could have gotten sick from it.

Disappointed.

This is the cave if anyone was wondering:

(The one I got for Nero is this one: http://www.petsmart.com/product/inde...mdn=Fish+Decor )

Octo now has a mug in the tank to act as a temporary cave until I can work something out for him.

I have like three of those barrel caves for my bettas, and they all LOVE them! I really like them, they are really cute!

I'm sorry the shark is peeling. That sucks. I don't know, maybe send an e-mail to the company and politely share your displeasure. Good luck!
I also have this one:

And find it very good! My betta Spazz LOVES it. He sits on top of it, sleeps on it, sleeps under it. Zooms through it back and forth. ^_^

Hmm, I like that! I might get that. It sort of matches the barrel thing that Nero has. :)
