  1. Sure. I’m trying to make different sized custom intake sponges.
  2. I appreciate it but I was thinking just the sponge.
  3. Has anyone had success gluing aquarium sponges together? If so, what did you use? I was hoping to find an adhesive that will permanently bond sponges and will still hold when the sponges are cleaned/squeezed out. Thanks
  4. This is something I found. I can’t speak to the accuracy of the source but they do address this here: https://aquanswers.com/aquarium-safe-paint-durable/ In the article they state, “Spray paints designed for plastic will become inert after curing. A completely cured paint with fully evaporated solvents is aquarium safe. Never use paints that are mold-resistant as these are toxic to fish.” I hope this helps. P.s. I saw this thread because I was looking for help. I also bought the new formula and wanted to know if it would work on terracotta? I’m going to paint soon. I’ll let it cure for a week and see how it goes unless I hear it’s not safe.
  5. Nice. I think I’ll get it a go. If it’s not a total disaster I post a pic. Thanks
  6. I just posted a question about Legos then I saw this. So there weren’t any issues with the edges (of the Legos)?
  7. Has anyone here used Legos in a tank? I was thinking of making something for a 20 gal with smaller fish. Sharp edges, should I be worried? Thanks
  8. @JettsPapa Of course! Thanks for your help.
  9. @JettsPapa Good point! Any suggestions for the diameter if I only wanted to prevent the neons and Scarlet basis? I appreciate your help 😊
  10. I posted this question before and got a lot of helpful advice, which I really appreciated. However, I didn’t get a specific answer. I thought maybe someone might know so I’m giving it another shot. I apologize for the redundancy. I made a shrimp cave out of a terracotta pot. I’m really happy with it. I’m hoping it will provide a good place for Bloody Mary shrimp to reproduce. The tank has amano shrimp, green neon tetras, and a scarlet basis also. What is the smallest diameter hole that will allow the Bloody Mary shrimp inside while also preventing the amanos and fish from entering? Any help will be greatly appreciated. Thanks 😊
  11. I loved the idea but no matter what I did it eventually started belching out air. I went through tons of headaches with Oase and replaced the whole unit twice plus a new head, gaskets etc. I found online others having the same issue. I ended up with a larger unit (for free from Oase) but it’s collecting dust. That said, others have said they love them, and when mine weren’t purging air they were super.
  12. I’m making an ApIsto cave this weekend. I want the entrance just big enough for the male (and female) to enter but not the other bigger fish in the tank. Any ballpark on the size of the hole for the entrance?
  13. Can you just let an anubias float in your tank? Will it be alright if it isn’t attached to something?
  14. Thanks for your help. I have ZERO idea where it came from. As far as I can tell it just sprang up from nowhere (?).
