Betta Fish Apothecary Jar

By Saturday, August 04, 2012 ,

Today the kids acquired a new pet "Fishy Fish" (our 4 year old named him). He's a crowntail Betta. I had an empty apothecary jar that occasionally holds snacks or cookies but usually is empty. Seemed like the perfect new home for "Fishy Fish".

Few rocks in the bottom, little plastic grass for comfort and tada a fish bowl that you won't mind staring at. This one sits on our kitchen island and is the perfect distraction while I'm cooking, no more kids playing "lets ride mom's feet" around the entire kitchen.

The lid has plenty of space for air to circulate and keeps little people from throwing toys in with the poor fish.
