This will be the final product of all your work. Hope you have fun doing it!

Step 1: What You Need

First you start out with one plastic bottle, scissors, super glue, and things to design your tank.

Step 2: Cutting Out Your Fish Tank

The second step is to cut on the black lines.

Step 3: After Cutting

This is what it should like like after you have cut the bottle.

Step 4: Decorating

The third step is to decorate the bottom part of your bottle.(Before you put the top on because thats the next step.)

Step 5: Connecting

The forth step is to connect the top of the water bottle with the bottom of the water bottle with super glue.

Step 6: Makeing Legs

The fifth step is to cut out legs for your tank. Then super glue them on.

    Funny to me how everyone is complaining because it’s too small, unstable etc. Why is no one complaining about the fact this is absolutely unacceptable for a fish??!! Like completely and utterly the most horrendous thing I could think of to put a fish in! It’s made of PLASTIC. PLASTIC IS POISONOUS TO FISH. Not only this, but how on earth do you propose to 1) filter it or 2) actually get a fish in that tiny tiny little space??

    DO NOT put a fish in this. It would be torture and certain death

    ya, too small, but in 5 th grade we got a 2 liter bottle, cut the top off, and we had a mosquito fish, so thanks for bringing back memories!

    wait, that doesn't look very stable. I mean, if one of the plastic legs bent, the whole thing could topple over, fish and water included. I think it would be better off w/o the legs.

    You just don't make them that tall so it is more stable.
