i'm thinking on something like those for my lizard tanks. :)

when you set up a new tank,hide an extra
sponge or two behind some decor,that way you have
something seeded for you next filter.

Those are really neat looking. Maybe I'll do something like that when I get my QT tank. It seems like such a nice hiding place for fish :)

Unglazed terracotta pots make great cheap caves for a QT. Got mine for a buck a piece.

I have made PVC caves for plecos to rest in and found that if you sand the PVC with some coarse sandpaper to rough it up a little the silicone and rock sticks a little better. For attaching Java fern an Orchid pot found at some garden centers or nurserys works very well. They are already drilled with holes.

The most important medication in your fish medicine cabinet is.. Clean water.

That was a sweet idea.... I just set up a 29g for my Convict Cichlids and made some of those for them. I'll post some pics.
Thanks for the killer idea.
When I set up my 110g bow front I want to make a big inter connected maze of tunnels and build my rock up around that.

These are all excellent ideas. The flower pot w/ moss is something I'm going to attempt tomorrow!

If you don't stand up for something you'll fall for anything...
