I was sick this weekend, thanks to my little brother. So what do I do? I paint my fishtank. I don't like backdrops(is that what they're called?) for fishtanks.. because well, they're ugly. So I paint the back in reverse, so when I turn it around it looks AWESOME Smiley Anyway, I stayed in my room all weekend and listened to Farewell<33(http://www.myspace.com/farewell/).. and I was looking at the little monsters on the album cover, and it inspired me to start drawing cartoons again(I quit a few years back Sad).. so I did on.. everything Roll Eyes, includinggg my fishtank. Oh whatever, you guys don't care, so here's the pics Grin :
















the fish are in order by couples, they're all in love (:
well, except Bozo and Mr. Janitor.. they both killed their lovers. D; mean boys.


RIP dead fish. (I've had this tank for over a year.. they don't all die at once. Roll Eyes)
Yeah, thats a toilet.




sorry the pics are such crap, it's hard taking pictures of fishtanks! Angry

thanks for looking Cheesy
comments are appreciated.

That is the coolest fish tank I've ever seen! I wonder if your fish realize what a fly home they've got, lol!

the cheap acrylic kind.
it comes off when i clean out the tank, but that just gives me a nice clean canvas for next time.
&the black is permanent marker, but thats comes off too.
