Oooh, pretty! Are you going to paint it?

Edit: sorry, my brain skipped over the coral bubbler part. That's so cool! Is there an airstone underneath attatched to the tubing or is it just the tubing? I'd love to see it set up in your tank!

It's just attached to the air tube and a connecter valve. And I would like to keep it white. If I ever find fish-friendly paint I may spruce it up a little, but for now it'll stay white.

I probably already know the answer to this, but is this aquarium safe?

I want to let my kids build something for their 75 gallon tank. Would be awesome if they could glow when the lights go off lol.

I'm gonna take a shot in the dark and call it safe. If there is any sense of doubt, I would let it soak in a bucket of water for a day or so and then test the water for any chemicals after it has been baked of course. This is the best way to test the product without causing any potential harm to your fish.

Id probably stay away from a oil based paint or water colours paint.

I've had the white cave in my glofish tank for about 2 months now and the only thing strange that I've noticed are little orange spots on it. All of my fish are fine, I used to have the decoration in with my cories, mollies, and guppies. Everyone is still healthy and happy. I've also made new decorations for my betta tank for shrimp to hide in. I've had no problems with it. I use the sculpey oven-bake clay. I would've painted them, but I have no idea what would work best in water...

Hm... Well I think as long as it's non toxic it should be fine. I've only tried the white.

I've made a few things but haven't used them. Need to pick up more clay and make some stuff to actually use. I got a different brand and just don't trust it.
