Intro: 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!

    The bottles would slowly degrade releasing plastic particles into the water

    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.

    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.
