saltwater PVC borrow
1 super glue GEL
2 PVC of your choice
3 coral ruble
4 five dollars
go to your local hardware store or home depot and get some cool PVC appropriate to your fishes size.
i bought two 3/4 inch elbows and a long curved piped
first gather your materials and have a seat. rinse your pvc in very hot water then dry off. once dry begin to glue the pvc in a way you like. then glue LR, coral, shells, or coral rubble to your PVC.
let it dry for about thirty minutes to ensure stability.
once its dry stick in tank
proceed to dredge the pip under the san to cover up all but the two elbows
here is what mine looks like installed
and my diamdem dottyback loves it
sorry for the blur
ive seen a DIY jawfish house on another forum somewhere, same concept except they made there pvc in a square with 1 entrance. drilled a few tiny holes so it sank easier and put a large barnicle at the entrance. burried the entire thing so all you saw was the barnicle.
i saw that thread which gave me the idea lol
Just about to say the same thing. :-)
Looks great. I don't think I've seen one like that yet. Does any fish/inverts use it yet?
Edit: Oops, didn;t see the text at the bottom.
and my Nassarius snails practicly live in there
and i am waiting for my snowflake to go in there
