| || | Kids toys okay to use as tank decorations?
I recently received a 55 gallon freshwater aquarium, and with two small children I wanted to decorated it with a children's theme...maybe Lego caves, or create a farm scene or zoo scene with plastic animals and houses. Has anyone ever done this before? Will it be safe for the fish? Will the chemicals in the plastics leak into the water? Any advice would be welcome! I currently have 5 mollies and 3 fruit tetras in this tank.
Also, since I am new to fish keeping I am looking for discounted fish supplies, especially filters. Does anyone know of an online fish discount store? I also have a 29 gallon tank...and between the two tanks the filters are getting expensive. Cheapest I found them is Wal-Mart, but it would be wiser to buy them in bulk....but I have had no luck so far.
