7) Is LEGO® safe in an aquarium for both the fish inhabitants and LEGO®?
After consultation with The Lego Company, it is indeed safe for all concerned. LEGO® is comprised of a very stable inert hard plastic and will therefore not breakdown in an aquarium environment.

I would do a diluted bleach solution and scrub. Then wash and dry.

This is a great idea. I can almost envision the tank. You must post photos as you go. I can't wait.

Not to state the very obvious... but Legos are very buoyant. You will have to figure out a way to attach them to something that will sink them to the bottom of the tank.

I think someone has done this before. I think they siliconed or superglued the legos to a piece of slate.

Lol, Legoland in LA was the one that popped up this time :P

Facts About Atlantis At LegoLand

Atlantis contains approxomitly 600,000 liters of water.

Every hour the water is re-circulated, which works out to 10,000 liters a minute.

20,000 Tonnes of salt were used to make the aquarium saltwater.

It contains 4 lego submarines, 15 lego divers and a skeleton. The fivers are 90cm's tall and the largest submarine is 4.5 meters long.

In all 230,000 lefo blocks were used in the aquarium.

Cost - $3.4 Million Euro's

Opened up March 31, 2007

I thought about this when I was setting up my 38g, but decided to take a more natural approach.

I was going to build the rocks and such out of the legos and attach them to the big plate base lego pieces and set that under my substrate to solve the buoyancy issue. The same idea should work with the lego characters.

Now thinking about this I may try this out on my new 10g...hmmm.....
