Using a Rodent igloo in your aquarium

Any ornament or cave that wasn't specifically made to be aquarium safe, I wouldn't take a chance with.

But I do tend to be overly cautious

Animal testing is a terrible idea; they get all nervous and give the wrong answers.

Although it's always prudent to be conservative, it's likely that any plastic 'pet toys' will be relatively safe and not off gas toxic chemicals.

I have heard of folks using "hamster tubes" in their tanks, but all the ones I've seen are antimicrobial and I didn't want to risk it.

hhhmmm....all seems to be well with it so far. Last night the juvies were pretty mad their dinner was late. Water levels are all in line this morning. Every now n then an angel goes into the igloo to poke at the hornwort that is anchored to the igloo, but they usually find their way out easily.

Can you move aquarium decorations around in a established aquarium? ShawnMcc Freshwater and Tropical Fish 6 06-02-2009 12:41 PM
