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. :welldone:

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