Besides temperature shock, i'm told not adjust pH more than 0.2 per day, hence the smaller changes. Of course, I KNOW my tap water is heavily buffered naturally and pH rarely changes so I could get away with a 90% water change, but if your water source is inconsistent, sticking to 10% is a safer bet.
It was sideways and not as effective as if it was mounted as intended. But what I did was put it near the water coming out of the filter and it rotated cockeyed so some of it was getting air and then water. But yes I bet it wasn't a lot better than floating it just a fun project. Next time I'm using Legos!

I've never thought to check to see if Lego makes clear blocks to construct a tank out of, but I'm pretty sure I saw them at the Lego store in Downtown Disney. Of course you could add the blocks INSIDE the tank (Google "Lego fishbowl") Pirates of the Caribbean lego pirates? Natch!

Someone actually contacted Lego to make sure that they're aquarium safe. They are!

Anything designed to be passed safely through a child's digestive system should be. They say there are something like 30 safety rules to build something for NASA, and *300* to make a child's toy.

Now i'm curious to price out 2-3 "starter sets", plus 2-3 "expansion packs", plus a sheet of glass for the front and several cases of aquarium sealant...
