Hello! I currently have a 10-gallon tank with four chilI rasboras, 1 balloon molly, 1 firetail molly, 2 shrimp, 10 snails, and 3 kuhliI loaches. I'm looking to re-scape the tank into a SpongeBob themed aquarium. I already have Squidward's house and Spongebob's pineapple in my aquarium. I plan on changing the substrate from gravel to sand (and swapping the two mollies for more rasboras and smaller shrimp sometime in the future). I'm not sure if the two tank features are enough hiding spots for the loaches... So I would like opinions on other tank features that would be SpongeBob themed and/or features that might provide more places to hide (I'm open to DIY suggestions but I prefer to buy it already made since I'm not a very crafty person lol).

Why not get Patrick's rock?
I’ve tried searching for one but no one is selling it at the moment. I’m thinking about just finding a similar rock and attaching a minI antenna to it lol

I wish I could put a crab in my tank but I think the shrimp will just become a food source

ThaI micro crabs are a little different. Super small, around the size of a shrimp when fully grown. They make good tank mates with shrimp (and vise versa)

You could use this and glue a little antenna to it.
