Talking Personalized fish swing bed and cave.

So my puffer lies down to sleep and she's always twitchy about it in case a predator comes and munches on her while her guard is down. I tried a few houses that I had.. But none were suitable for the almighty Buttercup, nicknamed Puff, she disliked the size of the entrances, they needed to be bigger even though she could fit through it no bother she dislikes going through a small entrance which I suppose is smart it prevents her from getting stuck. So I decided to make her a cave from a coconut, once made I had the smaller half which I decided to make a 'swing bed' as well to see if she would use that.. Then I got a bit carried away and put her name above the entrance of her cave. Process pictures and finished pictures.. Sorry for the long description!

1. Drainage!

2. It's open!!



3. gutted and boiling



4. nearly done



5. Stripped and engraved with 'Puff'



6. In the tank



7. The swing bed



8. Puff checking out her new cave



9. The whole tank



Thanks for viewing!!
