Very cool. The thing I am planning on doing for my wife's tank is to take a flowerpot, drill a mess of tiny holes in it, and stitch java moss all over the top half and bury it half way in the gravel. Similar, but plants instead of stones.

Logic is only the beginning of wisdom

I know this is a old post but does spray painting the tubes hurt the fish?

I have heard of spray paint that can be used that is "safe" for fish but I don't know of any that will permemnantly stick to PVC. Eventually it will start to peel of and the fish could eat it or get injured from the edges.

Just use the color PVC that matches your gravel closest. White, gray or black.

I have a sunken ship in my one tank and I think my pleco ate all the paint off of it. Is there anyway to keep it on there or put new paint on? Thanks
