Picture of Coolest and grotiest fish tank ever!
I was boring and I made an original but shabby fish tank for my aquatic pet.

Step 1: Find the materials

I used water bottles and a silicon glue gun.

You'll also need scissors and a screwdriver.

Step 2: Making the "aquarium"!

Well, you can do it like you want but I used three 1.5L bottles and a small bottle.

First I made two holes in one bottle, to glue the two another bottles in the same body. And next I glued another small bottle to one of the large bottles.

Make you sure that the joints don't leak!

Another think to keep an eye on is to make sure that your shabby fish tank is a minium stable. You can have a flood!

Note: I only use it two hours, inside the tank, my fish was hysteric and scared. The tank I made wasn't good, because I did it very fast and grotty.

But if you do it puting in more emphasys it can be very cute, cool and a litle nerd!

Step 3: My result:

It's only a prototype but if it's done with more emphasys it can be very original!

See the pictures!

Wow no ones reading that it was only a test. I would do something like this for a full water change. I mean geez they can survive a couple hours and then you put them back in the tank. Good idea man keep up the good work as long as its temporary for the fish.

Way to go, ahem, leave the fish endureding all this stress and waterchanges, he will live long as you occasionally put him / her a few minutes in such a construction, really. Sorry, but I have no nicer way to say I detest people who don't care for their animals in a serious way.
same that fish definitely needs more space< and that comment wasn't mean look at the comments for gum ball machine fish tank.

Oh no!, why doesn't people read the text and my comments!

This was only a test, if I have time, this summer I'll make a similar and more evoluted one fishbowl assembly project

you could make one with like 10 bottles all linked up so its like a maze for the fish. great instructable
ebcat (author)  sithlil3 years ago
yes, now, that I have some more time, I'll try to make a better one!, I'll post the instructable when it's made.

Thanks for the tip!

I’m all about the “be nice” comment policy, so I’ll be polite in my saying that this type of creation is unsuitable for any sort of fish. Pictured here is some sort of goldfish, either a comet or fantail; these fish need space as well as filtered water (they can survive in such conditions, but they will not be healthy/comfortable). The only fish that should live in stagnant water is the beta fish, which I do not suggest placing in such a small setup.

Read the anterior comments and my reply...

I was veeeery bored and I made it, then I put my fish inside, only to use the tank one time at least, until throw it away. The fish didn't suffered, probably they had fun for a while!

It might have been more effective horizontally? I think the fish might have found it more fun. Just my conjecture.
ebcat (author)  ahallock-13 years ago
if i have time, this summer I'll try to make another original fish tank, but better, and habitable for a fish.

xDD
Sounds fun! I wonder what would happen if you used the smaller ones to connect to larger "pools". Also, try using smaller fish, so they have more room. Also, smaller fish have a smaller turning radius, and thus would have an easier time navigating the resulting maze like structure. Also, consider a way to add a bubble stone to aid in keeping the water aerated.

what is grotiest? Does that mean "fish torture device"?
ebcat (author)  masoon3 years ago
NOO, anytime! It's grotty, because it's rude, ugly, useless...

and I repeat I only put my fish inside for a minutes to use the fish tank one time. After that I threw it away.

PS: the fish isn't still living...

Lol. Interesting idea.
Please don't put any fish in this. Fish need constant waterchanges and upkeep that would make this tank a deathtrap.
ebcat (author)  silent1mezzo4 years ago
obviously I quit the fish in two hours and I throw away, was unstable, buy maybe I'll do a similar and better tank

poor scared fish ! ! lol.. one year I used 3liter soda bottles to make hanging fish tanks outside, they worked pretty well with 2 goldfish as long as they were out of the sun. no lid and I drilled 6 holes about an inch down from the neck (top of "shoulder") to allow air circulation
ebcat (author)  l8nite4 years ago
cool idea! I am thinking to do another similar fish tank, but a little better than the old, and really suitable for fishes!
