Help me find a use for my old aquarium (without fish)?

Hi :) I have an old fish tank / aquarium that's the tall polygon-style (like this - http://www.crystal-fox.com/webart/products_large/3385.jpg)I never seem to have much luck with fish sadly, so I'd like to find a non-fish but decorative way to use my pretty glass fish tank. I like candles, plants, pretty stuff like that.Any and all suggestions would be very much appreciated, thank you :)!

Instructable wanted &quot;How to build a Fish Tank&quot;

I have been browsing through all the fish tank instructables and I thought that they were rather rubbish to be honest.... I want an instructable to build a decent tank in a rectangle shape with the dimensions of Height: 12" Length: 20" Depth:14" (Dimensions do not have to be followed but appreciated if they are and dimensions do not include lid space) If there is also any specific thicknesses needed for the tank to hold the capicity of water this would greatly appreciated if stated. I would also like the person who choses this project to use links to websites for the materials/tools (preferably English GBP currency) Any links to what types of fish are work well together would also be a bonus. Thanks in advance to anyone who will write the instructrable for this.

Fish Curry

Ingredients: Servings: 6-8 Units: US | Metric 2 lbs fish fillets (best with tilapia) 2 tablespoons garlic paste 2 inches gingerroot 5 teaspoons mustard seeds 4 bay leaves 1/2 tablespoon coriander powder 5 medium shallots or 2 medium onions 7 red chilies 1 tablespoon cumin seed 3 teaspoons turmeric powder 3 tablespoons salt 2 big tomatoes oil, to deep fry fish 3 cups water Directions: 1 In a grinder grind the onions, ginger, 2 bay leaves, red chili, mustard seeds, cumin seed all together. 2 Preserve some cut pieces 1 cup) of onion. 3 Cut small pieces of tomatoes. 4 Make small pieces of fish fillets, about 3 inches in length. 5 Clean them properly if you are using the whole fish and make it into small pieces. 6 Take a big plate, put the fish in it and sprinkle 2 teaspoon of salt, two teaspoon of turmeric powder and the garlic paste. 7 Mix all of them properly. 8 Allow to marinate for 1/2 hour. 9 Take a pan or a wok (preferable), heat it and put oil to deep fry the fish. 10 Once the oil is much hotter, fry the fish, 3-4 pieces at a time, 3-4 minutes on each side. 11 Keep all of them in a separate plate. 12 When all the pieces are fried, clean all the black residues from the oil in the wok with the spatula and put 2 tablespoon of fresh oil in the it. 13 Then put a pinch of cumin seed, a pinch of mustard seed, 2 red chili, 2 bay leaves, a pinch of aniseed (all together is called panch-phoran) and allow them to splutter. 14 Then put the cut onion pieces and allow it to just a little brown. 15 Then put all the ground paste,tomatoes,left over turmeric powder and salt to taste. 16 Keep stirring it until the paste becomes a little brown (it takes around 10 minutes). 17 You can also identify it by looking at the wok, that the paste will start leaving the oil and paste will now no more stick on the wok. 18 The paste is now perfectly fried. 19 Now pour 3 cups of water to it, or as much thick gravy you want. 20 Once the gravy comes to boil, start dropping the fried fish pieces and allow to boil for 15 minutes. 21 Switch off the gas. 22 Use coriander leaf for garnishing. 23 This dish should be served with fresh steamed rice and squeeze some lime some juice on top.

Fishing Lures

After seeing this, it has me wonder if anyone has anyone else experimented with making fishing lures? Particularly, has anyone tried making any unusual fishing lures? With any success? I recall, when being dragged on fishing trips as a kid, that outdoor stores would often have some crazy gimmick lures that never seemed like they would work, but claimed to be the greatest thing that ever happened to fishing since the beer hat. I think it would be a fun challenge to not only make an incredibly bizarre fishing lure, but to get it to work.

Fish In A Light Bulb

So I was wondering do you think it would be possible to take an old ligth bulb hallow it out and use it as a fish bowl for a mini fish?  Im just not sure should I put a small plant in there and if so what kind of plant so maybe just a little air pump while Im gone.  Or would a small fish be fine if I put some rocks on the bottom and then just changed it once a month or so?  Or would it end up being every day do you think? Ethan PS I hope people dont bite my head off thinking Im a horrible person I just like the idea of having a fish in a light bulb I think it would look cool so Im asking before I do it and accidentally kill a fish...

How do you like your meats?

How do you prefer your meats cooked? I like any kind of meat, including fish well done, sometimes to the point of drying it out a little. It's not the taste to me that I don't like about not completely cooked food. It's not some worry about bacteria or anything either. I just don't like the texture that you get, especially with fish and eggs.

Now that's what life is for...

Fishing that is. I got to spend 6 hours today on the Mosquito Lagoon with a professional fishing guide. This was my first time with a pro and it was insanely fun. This guy knew more about fishing than I could even imagine existed. The fishing was a little slow, and the guide cussed a blue streak when we got to his best spot and found a kayaker wading around aimlessly spooking the fish. But I still had a great time and landed the three biggest fish of the day a 14 lb Red and two sea trout 6 & 4 lbs. Numerous smallertrout were caught and released.

fake fish for lazy or irresponsible people, how do i make them?

The problem: ----------------------------- hello. i've been wondering how i could make some fake fish. i live with my parents and want a small aquarium on my room, but i don't feel responsible enough for such a (silent) pet. so i want to put some fake fish in my aquarium. i want them to 'swim' around and look good. does anyone have an idea? my ideas: ---------------------- my first idea was using an old cd-drive, buy some fishtoys (or fishing equipment, i heard people use fake fish to atrract other fish), attach the fish to the cd-drive and then turn on the drive and see the fish swim around. the problem is that the cd-drive makes many rotations per second, so the fish would swim way to fast. i've been thinking about using magnetism in some way, but i could'nt figure out a good way to do this. anyone? closing: ----------------------- i appreciate any idea's. i have no problem with using electricity, but rather not in the water itself (rather above like my CD drive idea) thanks in advance.

Inventing on Vacation: Wounded Fish

This idea came to me after a day of fishing (I lost my best lure, but through the miracle of snorkeling, found it.) This seems like a simple idea, and I'm surprised it hasn't been invented yet. It is an improvement on the lures that supposedly look like a wounded fish.The idea is simple. A small, sealable "refill tube" connects to a hollow area inside the lure. This is the reservoir for fish blood. A thin membrane on one side of the lure allows the blood to seep out. You refill by filling an eyedropper with blood and inserting it into the refill tube. (I'm being brief right now because this is the third time I've typed this and I'm getting tired.)

Custom Fish tank stand

I am creating a custom fish tank stand from 2x4s and sheet wood. I plan to paint it black but I ran into 2 problems when I decided I didn't want the hood that came with the tank. 1) The lighting.     I have a pretty good history with LEDs so creating the lighting will not be too hard, only real issue I run into is sealing the lamp. I plan to use an acrylic sheet with holes drilled for the white and blue LEDs. White for day and a row of blue for moonlight on a 3 way rocker. I just dont want water to penetrate the holes from the ports for the light to damage the components. 2) The filter.    This is where I am at a loss. I plan on making something similar to this: http://tinyurl.com/fishtankdesign But I have no idea how to an external filter rather than one of the regular table top aquarium ones that would not look very pleasing on a nice stand. Any ideas questions comments or concerns please ask.

Update to my Instructable : Constructing A Small Fish Pond In The Garden

My Instructable Constructing A Small Fish Pond In The Garden, received some negative comments from couple of members. I reproduce a part of comment here from one of the honorable member : Quote " I do not recommend that anyone follow these instructions for a fish pond. There are major problems here. If you want to build a water feature in your yard, this may be passible, but this is not sufficient for a fish pond. " Unquote My small fish pond without any aeration and filtration is still thriving. My heartfelt thanks for the support provided by finton. I have posted an earlier update after three months and again a new update exactly after five months today (27 Jan 2014)... My water plants have flowered, my fishes are healthy and pond liner I used is in perfect condition... cheers

New Light Fitting Smells Of Fish When Hot

Hi, I have just fitted a new light fitting. After it gets hot (60 Watt filament bulb) The room smells of fish. I believe that the smell is coming from the hot plastic, probably from the plastic that holds the shade in place. I don't want to reduce the wattage, The label on the connector says it is rated for 100 Watts. How can I get rid of the fish smell? Thanks

Fish n' Chips and other fast food question: IMPORTANT!

Well, for a Business studies/economics assignment (40 pages!!!!!!) I was given the task of setting up a hypothetical business. This is basically doing everything APART from actually doing it, if that makes sense.  Anyway, I'm setting up a (hypothetical) Fish n' Chip shop and I just wanted to know what would make you want to visit a Fish n' Chip shop, from the outside I mean. What kind of shopfront aesthetics would make you think "wow, let's go there!" There are no Mcdonalds, Burger King or KFC etc. where I live, so there are no big brands to compete with: just 2 pubs and a chinese take-out. Also if you could think of a good name for my shop, that would be great! I thought of: "House of Cod" and "The best Plaice in town" but I couldn't think of any others that aren't already established Fish n' Chip companies.
