A few days ago I showed you how to hollow out a light bulb. But now what to do with that empty bulb? Today I want to show you a way to transform that bulb into an aquarium.This will look super cute in any room and is very easy to assemble and maintain.
Attention: Even though it’s called Light Bulb Aquarium a light bulb is not a good home for fish! You can have plants in it and maybe a snail. But please never put a fish in it. It’s way too small and it would be cruel.
First I’ll show you how to make a very easy macrame hanger for the bulb.
All you need is yarn and scissors.
First you cut 8 stripes of yarn in the same length.
Second you make a knot to combine all strands.
Than you make a knot about 1 inch from the main knot in two strands at a time.
Now you’ll do the same but with yarn strands next to the ones you knot. (I hope this makes sence)
Now you can insert the light bulb.
For the Light Bulb Aquarium I used some Aquarium sand from my actual tank. Also I used a small marimo moss ball from there as well. You can get those in most aquaristic stores but you can also order them online. The little piece of wood is thrift wood. I think the Light Bulb Aquarium could also look great with some shells in it.
A little snail from my main tank also sneaked into the bulb. So now I have to take care of it 🙂 Some of the water might evaporate over time so you just have to add more. And that’s about it! Get creative and please share your results with me. I would love to see what kind of Light Bulb Aquarium you came up with!
