At least I think this is cool! I have to give credit to my husband for the new addition to the tank. We were looking for something else at Home Depot.. something I could use in this big tank to make caves and places for them to swim in & out of. He found what you see here!! What do you think?? My guys love it!!



And check out my free new addition to my little tank. He's in with my baby pleco - bristle nose albino. They are very good in the tank together. I don't really have a name yet.. just Blu.



Enjoy!!

I like Mike's idea and it seems to be appreciated by your fish!
Plus it suits the rest of the decorations. :)

And I think you won't find a better name than Blu for your new....uhm, what is it?
A huge shrimp or a lobster?
Never seen something like that over here.
very nice.
Hope he stays good friends with the Pleco!

@ Matt.... thanks! I've never done the lobster thing. Blu is pretty cool looking. Hope I can take good care of him. My research shows that he is pretty simple to care for as long as you keep his tank mates to their recommendations.

@ Nicki.... isn't it an awesome idea! Way to go Mike!! I would have never though of doing that.. ever! The fish love it. Of course when I was filming I couldn't get them to swim through it as much as I wanted but they are in and out of it constantly!

@ Proudmama.... Thanks! I try to give them as many hiding places as I can without making it hell on me for cleaning. I'm a good mom and take all of that out every single cleaning because there is so much crap (literally) in between and under those caves its disgusting! Blu is hilarious when you come to the tank. He's all of about 2" but acts like he is 12" !!!

@ Basset.... Thanks my friend!

@ Noddy.... Mike came up with a good one didn't he? Some times he pulls them out of thin air! I'm sure I can find a better name for Blu but Red's name stuck with him.. never found a better one for him! Blu is a lobster.. you don't have these mini lobster's over there? I hope the two of them stay good friends too. So far they don't care about each other.

Thanks Jason... they do love it. As I said earlier the video doesn't show how much they swim through it. as soon as I come near the tank they come around looking for food!
