Ok, that's awesome, did you use a half coconut shell for Patricks house? i had the same thought...the weather vane makes me nervous though, i didn't want one of my daughters fish loosing an eye, especially with having what seems like a mostly blind Black Moor bouncing around

Where'd you find the tree for inside the TreeDome?

Yup, it's a half coconut shell. I bought one of the premade ones from petsmart, the 'fiddler crab habitat' or whatever, but you could cut a coconut shell easy enough if you wanted. I made the weather vane out of yellow plastic from a tetra water conditioner bottle, not sure if the fish would hang up on it or not, but mine never did.

I made the tree by chipping off a small piece of driftwood and gluing it to a marimo moss ball.

Sandy's Treedome

I run a youtube channel and made a bikini bottom aquarium complete with Sandy's Treedome. Had many of the same problems you had in this thread but I finally worked. Slate on the bottom of the dome sunk it fine. Plenty of video footage here: https://youtu.be/vjpAOKepjYM
