Tips for DIY "Built in fish tanks".

Alternative pets in a Wall Aquarium.

How about a shrimp tank?  Shrimps are cool guys to watch as they interact with each other and roam around.  Red cherry shrimps are very popular and grow to around 1”.  A few in a tank can multiply to a hundred in no time at all.  They make a cool freshwater tank colony and are not very demanding so of course they work well in a wall tank.

How about lizards or amphibians?   It would be cool to have a branch with geckos, frogs or turtles inside your wall.  You can have a little pond area in the bottom and a leafy green area above but will it work?  Of course it will.  Just add critters that don’t grow too big for your tank and rig up a heat source.  Be careful not to put heat directly against an acrylic tank or it might melt.   You also might want tape off any holes where they can escape from.

What about an ant farm?  Although I have no experience with ants and don’t know what I’m blogging about I can’t see why not and say, go for it (if it doesn’t work you didn’t get the idea from here).

Perhaps a wall aquarium makes a great tank for your cat or dog… Umm, no.
