Vintage Antique Mermaid Aquarium Fish Bowl Tank Ornament Figurine
Vintage Mermaid Bathing Beauty Aquarium Fish Tank Bowl Figurine Japan | eBay
I'm not sure why it never occurred to me before to talk fish-tank decor in my Halloween posts. I mean, it's always had a love affair with spooky pirate skeletons and broken skulls, and some full-blown sci-fi horror aquarium figurine lines have cropped up over the past couple years that are still going strong. I guess it took one final push from a single, special item I found at just this past week, so here you go, a tour of some of my favorite creeps your carp can crap on.
This is the one Swimming Dead figurine I actually own, and I just find everything about it distinctly attractive. It's just the right shade of ghastly, bloodless blue, really bringing out the pink edges of its half-lidded eyeballs. I wound up ordering one of these especially to use in an aquarium, and an aquarium set up exclusively for my first-ever actual, bona-fide pet Here is a shoddy picture of them eating frozen beef heart:

You could, for example, create an aquascape that perfectly replicates the New York City skyline, giving your fish a chance to swim around the Empire State Building like some sort of . You could also equip your aquarium with a perfect to-scale replica of your childhood home, complete with a sand driveway and leafy plants to replicate trees in your back yard.Theoretically, you could apply the same principles to your custom aquarium. Now, don’t get me wrong – I’m not advocating that you go out and buy a plastic model of a sunken ship for $20. What I’m saying is that we shouldn’t outright dismiss figurines as a possible means of decorating your aquarium.Hello, I really like your idea about coating the figurines with a layer of epoxy to make the safe for the fish. My questions are these: exactly what kind of epoxy do I need to be looking to buy? What is the price range? Where can I buy it? I would really like to make some DIY decorations out of Sculpty clay and paint them with acrylics, but I'm not sure what kind of epoxy coating I would have to buy to make them aquarium safe.
