I wanna build a fish tank

       My best friend/ roommate for college wanted a fish. I was a against it. As she kept begging, I gave in. I needed to pick my battles, and the room color was becoming an ordeal. So the fish tank became my bartering chip. Here is my inspiration:

     It is from Pinterest, where every teenage girl gets her ideas. I being very unorganized spent 2 hours at Wal-Mart and J&K looking at fish and rocks, fun I know. Once I found my general supplies, the building begins. I started with a jar
     It was a resealable cookie jar. Next I bought lace burlap and red chevron ribbon (my friends favorite color). Also I removed the metal hardware, I wanted to put it back, but it didn't fit. Next I cleaned the rocks, that resembles river pebbles. I also added water and a stress coat and let it sit.
     Lastly I dragged my little brother to the pet store to pick a fish. I switched between a black and black speckled molly, an angel fish, or a Beta. I ultimately picked the Beta. It was a gorgeous blue crown tail. Also I bought a moss ball because it eats allege, or at least I read, and this fish will probably ended up in our dorm. I also picked up a fake plant to just fill up some space in the jar. 
     The water is blue from the beta water prep thing. The end product is this cute jar the comfortable houses the new. yet to be named, Beta. My friend loved it and is show casing it tomorrow at her open house.

  2. I had a friend who kept goldfishes. But her fish-tank wasn't as creative as yours!
    Stay awesome as ever,
