Ha! She had to get a better view of the alien. ;)

LOVE that tank! I'm going to have to look around for some cool LEGO kits.

So today, dear husband wakes up (again at 6, he's insane) and finds one poor girl has swum up inside one of the decorations and is apparantly trapped! We have no idea how she managed it. I don't think there's an opening that's more than 6-7mm, but she did. No apparent fin damage either. I'm going to re-silicone over any entrances, just to be safe. Seriously though, there's a shot glass wedged up inside the only large opening and siliconed all around, and that's planted in about 1" of sand. She must be some kind of Houdini.

This is the pooper; I might add. I can tell she will be a real character.

He did snap a few pics, 'cause let' be honest, it was kinda funny. She's all safe and swimming around like normal now.

That is a really neat tank, and I'm glad your girl didn't drown herself Mine kept trying that with a glass bottle I had in the tank, getting inside and being confused how to escape, so I finally just removed it for safety.

Thanks everyone! We're still trying to get pictures of everyone. Some of the girls are pretty camera shy.

@Olympia: I can't blame her! This tank was pretty much my excuse to play alien invasion, lol.

To everyone thinking of using legos: They rock! But I was not kidding about weighing them down. Save yourself a lot of swearing and be prepared with suction cups, silicone, and weights from the beginning.
