New Caves & Tunnels

I needed more for my 2 gsp to do in their tank but after pricing tank decorations I decided to make some myself and they turned out pretty good. I bought PVC joints the ones that curve and one that makes a T. and I covered them with pure silicone and took the same color/type rocks that they have on the bottom of their tank and covered the pipe with them. Out of two joints they ended up with 5 caves/tunnels that completely blend into the aquarium and with plants placed around give them lots of places to explore.

I'm ready for the pressure.
The drama and the pleasure!
If there is one thing I want to see here, it's HUMOR.
I believe I can fly!
I believe I can touch the sky!
I think about it every night and day!
I stand in awe of my body.

Excellent idea, and they do blend in really well with the rest of the tank. Great job! :D
