I wanted my fish to have fun.. so i decided to brighten up the tank environment with some beads my mom gave me a while back. The fish can now sleep in it.. swim through it.. and spend a lot of time digging arround it for grub :)
Step 1: Requirements
- an aquarium.. mine is a 12"x24"x15" tank (70litre/18galon) with small fish, so i used a 2litre coke bottle for this.. if your tank is smaller , use a smaller bottle(350ml or whatever).
- a plastic coke bottle
- a pair of scissors
- Glue ..i used Araldite, you can use anything that will stick the beads to the plastic bottle, but will not dissolve and contaminate your tank.
Step 2: Cut the bottle
- cut off the top and bottom of the bottle
- cut off a chunk from the center(see diagrams)
Step 3: Glue the beads on
i strung the beads and then wrapped them arround the plastic i had applied glue on..
you can glue them induvidually if you like.
and your done..
place it in your aquarium such that the fish have multiple entry and exit points :D
