Cool idea!

Are you thinking of the dollhouse as more of a frame to go around the tank? If so you may want to remove the floor or reinforce the floor to support the weight of the tank.

Exactly!

I'm going to keep the floor but reinforce it on the bottom plus I have to build the floor up so the tank will sit up higher

I thought it would be awesome if it was stocked with glo fish!

Glo fish are genetically modified zebra danios which I believe need more than ten gallons due to their high level of activity, however there are lots of cool nano fish. Take a look at celestial pearl danios or ember tetras.

Thanks! I'll have to post pictures when I decide to do this project, I've got a whole book full of doodles and blueprints of ideas for unique tanks. I've just got to decide which one to start first lol

I think it's an interesting idea but i'd seal the wood up really good so mold doesn't become an issue

I'm going to use the house more as a frame, I'm going to put a tank inside it
