way to much time on my hands
 
i put in some clear tubing throughout the substrate this weekend, and made a little see through "tunnel" pressed against the front of the glass (think hampster tunnel)- and my loaches absolutely LOVE it! they think they are being sly and hiding. when i feed them, they haul their food down there so the other fish don't snatch it, and I get to watch them eat. its really neat looking. they swim in one side and out the other like 100 times a day. the only thing that sucks, is i will probably have to remove it once a month or so to clean around / in it. i'll try to catch a photo of it.

Nice one.8) I believe I need a clear PVC pipe for my BGK.:? The PVC pipe, which is not clear anyway though the BGK would have appreciated it, placed in the tank was occupied by the striped Raphael catfish and occasionally, the loaches. Couch potato.:shock:
