I have a small fish tank and when my fish had fry I needed a way to protect them without taking up my entire tank. I created this frame for that purpose


you will need to print the top, bottom and 4 posts. then press them all together. sew a mesh material around the box and hang it in the tank.

Does PLA/ABS float / sink/float? .. ive been trying to find an answer to this.

I just did an experiment and items with a 20% fill float the best.

Sorry went to hit reply and clicked the down. Anyway I cut a 2 inch piece of 1.75 pla and abs and both sank. Of course most things are not printed solid so I would expect a lot of items would float with lower infills

Thanks for testing that out as I dont yet have a 3d printer (soon) ..

what material did you print it with ? I worry about using PLA as it might break down in the water? and i wonder if ABS would be toxic at all to the fish or change anything in the water?

I used PLA and had no issue with it breaking down.
