Earlier today I got the weirdest idea. Make a floating cave/nest/hideaway. I got an image of a sphere woven together from stiff reeds or long, thin branches, with some sort of plant woven among it to give it a more natural look. Something like hornwort or anachris. It would have multiple openings, so no one gets cornered in there if some other fish decides to be a trouble maker. Depending on the material used, it would either be anchored from below or tied to something above, to keep it at a certain level.
I was wondering what I could use to make this? I need something that won't rot, like most branches, and something that won't rust, or give off chemicals in the water. Ideas? Comments? Suggestions?
This is probably going to end up being frustrating, but I want to try it out. Now I'm just spoiling the fish.
Here's a concept picture.
