This is my first post in here, and I hope I am in the correct place.
I have had a 13 gallon freshwater aquarium for about 3 years now. Currently it is home to a betta fish and two cory cats (I know, weird team).
Yesterday I went to get more fish food and I fell obsessed with a betta there.
I named him Picasso. I didn't want to put him in with my other fish because I know that Hamilton, my betta in the 13 gallon wouldn't quite care for him.
So I got him his own little bowl that is pretty simplistic. I thought I would roll with the idea that I named him Picasso (because he looks like he is covered in pain splatter!) by putting a little easel in his bowl.
There are no easel fish ornaments that I am aware of.
I did, however, find that Joanns has a tiny easel that is made of US pine. I've read that you should boil it before placing in a tank. i realize that because it is pine it might not last long, but as long as its safe for my fish, I will just remove it if it begins to degrade whatsoever.
So really, my question is if anyone has any ideas about how to make this all work? I am going to try the easel thing as I stated above, but it doesn't have a canvas on it and I was gonna try to put some kind of canvas on it.
Either an actual painting that picasso has done, or maybe just a cute little scribble of fish on it. I can't think of what to use for a canvas, or how to attach it to the easel, or how to seal it or whatever else.
Any help is appreciated!
