Thread: DIY Cichlid playhouse

  1. #1

    DIY Cichlid playhouse

    This is the cichlid playhouse I made today but it sure is ugly. Anybody got any ideas on how to dress this up? I siliconed a piece of slate to the bottom so it would stay upright and not float but I can't get past having an fish cave 1.JPG ugly, 20" tall stick of pvc pipe in my tank.

    Other forums say this is safe - http://www.krylon.com/products/fusion_for_plastic/

    May look better in black or blue ...

    *Rub silicone all over the piece and add some of your sand substrate so it will blend in.
    *Cover the pipe in great stuff and calve out nooks and crannies then do the above or paint it in your choice of color.
    * Super glue some moss / Anubias or java fern (depending on what kind of cichlids you have)
