Thanks for the compliments!

It is really cute, but it is going to get nasty pretty quickly and its going to be hard if not impossible to clean. All of the little holes in the perler beads and the gaps between them are going to fill up with algae and bacteria. Also I would worry about his fins snagging or getting scratched on any rough edges.

Trust me, I thoroughly checked for any places his fins could get snagged or lodged. It's very smooth and passed the panty hose test. I also clean his ornaments every week in warm water when I do his water change, so no worries Smiley

My first thought was OMG she used hot glue in an aquarium surely that will poison the fishies! But after reading your post and seeing that it is safe I a) apologise for doubting you and b) need to say how freaking awesome it is!

I had that same idea when I saw it. It will be a pain in the butt to keep bleached and cleaned. Didn't think about the rough edges, though, but you are right. Good point. It is cute, but maybe better if sealed in some form of acrylic, so that it was more like a plexiglass feature. With solid walls between the openings.
