So, I was doing a swap on one of the Dollhouse Miniatures lists I'm on with another forum, looking for ideas to make something spectacular and "wow" worthy.  I came across someone's blog page where they showed how they made a dollhouse aquarium, so I put my own spin on it and this is what I came up with.  It would be awesome with a miniature light in it, in a dollhouse living room, or just on a desk as a paperweight.  What do you think?

The "aquarium" it's self is one of those magnetic top paperclip dispensers.  The "water" is that acryllic stuff that hotels use to make their silk flower arragements (I got it at Walmart, but Joanne Fabrics has it too).  The fish are glass beads (I found some clownfish beads that I want to use to make another one of these).  The rest is stuff I had in my stash of treasures.
