This is my little fish tank complete with puffer fish, clown fish,....er purple fish which I can't remember the name of, and star fish which is sucking onto the back wall of the aqarium. There is also an orange coral and green plant. The purple fish is swimming up to the little bits of fish food floating in the water.  It's all clay except for the water gel and tank itself. I made each little piece of gravel with clay.
Here are some more pictures-





Thanks for looking!

Edited to add this picture. It's a toothpick leaning against it to show size. The length of the tank is 2 in.
Also the water is the gel that is used in vases of silk flowers. You can buy it at craft stores for about $12 for a bottle (this used about a fourth of the bottle).

Can we see it with a ruler or a quarter or something so we can see the size?

GREAT job, btw.  Truly the essence of mini cuteness!   I know a Strawberry Shortcake house that it would fit perfectly in!  Smiley

Wow, that's amazing!!  I'm with everyone else.  What is that gel?  I've seen clear aloe vera gel before, is that what it is? 

So much work gone into this.  Great job!!
