LEGO Planted Aquarium Project

Because I love this Aquarium hobby so much, I was motivated to build this Lego model. I am so pleased with the results, that I decided to publish it on the Lego Cuusoo website.

If you like this model I hope you will visit Cuusoo and offer your support of this project. If this project reaches 10,000 supporters, Lego will consider packaging it for retail sale.

If you want to see more pics, just hit the link.

Have an open mind, but not so open that your brains fall out.

Think outside the glass box.

Thank you everybody for the positive feedback! It makes me happy to see that others here at PT are also into Lego. I wonder how many people over at cuusoo have yet to discover planted tanks?

I love it, I am in the process of signing up so I can support you. I actually read somewhere that Legos can be used as decor in an aquarium as well as filter media.

EDIT: Supported.

They sure can! You can eat legos though I don't recommend it. It's 100% food grade safe plastic. Makes sense since their primary function is for "children" (hehe) to play with!

I am currently brainstorming about a lego project to drop in my tank. Probably the new tank that I haven't set up yet, that's in my garage because of my stupid broken foot.
