DIY IKEA Vase Aquarium Contest (Work in progress!!)
Thanks for making this contest! Now I'm motivated to finish the project I started last month. :-D
I'm from NYC living in studio and I wanted another aquarium in addition to my 5g. I wanted an aquarium for the corner of my studio and thought this IKEA vase would be perfect. Who knew I would be making an aquarium from IKEA vase, but that is what I'm doing... I'll post some pictures of supplies I used. I should be done soon (just waiting for couple of more items) and will post the rest.
IKEA BLADET VASE (I GOT THIS FOR $15 FROM CRAIGSLIST)
Diameter: 10 ¾ "
Height: 25 ½ "
IKEA BJURÖN PLANT STAND

IKEA LACK SIDE TABLE (ONLY USED THE TOP, NO LEGS)

That is all for now, I have great plan to hide the airline tube and I'll be replacing the current filter. Don't like it very much... Hope to have more photos by early next week.
Whoa.... that is so unique. How much water does it hold? What are those little fishies you have in there?
its between 8 and 10 gallons depending on how big the base glass is
Thumbs up to you. :thumbsup:
