I’ve been wanting to get a pet for some time now. I figured a fish would be a great starter pet! Plus a colorful Betta is a great and inexpensive way to add a little color to a room without pulling out the paint brush. I wanted a really decorative tank for my fish to live in. Since I always feel like I’m in an art museum when I stare at my Betta, I thought framing the tank would be a fun and creative idea to display my new moving art piece.
Materials: Rectangular Tank, Picture Frame, Mounting Tape, Aquarium Rocks, Aquarium Decor
Remove the back of your frame and apply your mounting tape.
Tip: Your picture frame should be the same size as your tank. A rectangular vase that you find at your local craft or floral store will make a great tank. Just be sure it’s at lease 2 -3 inches deep to give your fish wiggle room.
Mount the frame to your tank.
Decorate the inside of your tank with rocks, greenery or whatever aquatic decor that catches your eye. Remember this is the “picture” that will be visible in your frame so have fun with it!
My new fish really seems to be enjoying his new home. It’s bigger than that little bowl he’s been living in for the past few weeks and the plastic plant is quickly becoming his new BFF! Now it’s time to name him…
What should I name my new fish? If it were up to me I’d name him Elton, but thank goodness it’s not… I’m leaving it up to you guys! Leave any name suggestions in the comment section below and I’ll pick my favorite. If your name is chosen I’ll send you a little gift in appreciation! xo
