Star Wars inspired diorama fish tank
I started this before Christmas, and finished it a couple of months back, but only just finished adding all the fish into it that we wanted (actually, we are due to get another 5 or 10 neon tetras for my eldest’s birthday, but it’s full at that point).
I found some plans for a 3D Moon of Endor bunker which I had printed, then took a drill to the back of it to run a tube into it and slowly fill with air to have a few little bubbles come out.
Ewok attack, speeder bikes, and AT-ST lego packs I found on Gumtree for a decent price, and the other bits and bobs I picked up over time.
The kids put all the Lego together, and have been choosing the fish to put in (with some guidance from me and the Internet).
I was sensible and glued a big(ish) panel of Lego to the bottom of the tank before doing anything else, but actually attaching the Lego men/items to it is more trouble than you think now that the sand is on top…
The algae has taken hold though, so going to need to do a cleanup job unless I can get some adult shrimp that will do a better job than the oto’s i bought for cleanup purposes…
