New Caves & Tunnels

This is a discussion on New Caves & Tunnels within the DIY Aquarium forums, part of the TFK Resources category; --> that's a good point. I used 2" pipe (i think) which is pretty wide. My cherry barbs love it and can really go sailing ...

that's a good point. I used 2" pipe (i think) which is pretty wide. My cherry barbs love it and can really go sailing thru it so I would imagine they push some water around in there that and I have a 'chimey' like extension that should allow the water to move up as well. Putting 'holes' every couple inches as well should help. Dremel and a torch work there.

well i have admit i would be using fairly large 4"-2" sections of it for cichlids.... but i have just visited my local landscaping yard/store.. and found some petrafied wood in various sizes and mexican river rocks in black and Colorado rainbow river rock all for about 16cents a lb.. i want my tank to be mostly blacks and grey... i am wondering about how one safely makes sure rocks are ok for your tank.. also is petrified wood lighter than river rock?...

I'd be interested in finding out whether or not Oxygen based sanitizers like I find at my local Brewing store ('Straight A cleaner') would be safe for aquaria? I haven't found a reason why it wouldn't. You wouldn't have to rinse either! Just soak and done.

petrified wood is very heavy, i dont know how it compares to river rock, but its certainly much heavier than the usual stuff you find in stores. Rocks can be used for the aquarium if it doesnt react to acid tests. Pour some vinegar on a rock, if it fizzles, its no good, if nothing happens wash the rock and use it.
