Diy fish decor

I have a 20 gallon tank with Cory cats and some live bearers. I'm looking to give them something "fun" to swim through or play with? What are some suggestions of things around the house you can use?

Coconut caves make a nice natural looking addition to an aquarium. I have one in my tank and my cories seem to love it.

I hear you have to soak the coconut for a while, and change the water you soak them in until it doesn't get cloudy

I've never thought of that. I used some plastic tubes for hamsters to give them something to swim through. They were brand new. Think this is ok?

You could always use PVC.

I thought about that but I liked the color and the fact I can still see the fish through it
