Christmas Tank with Christmas Lights!

Recommended Posts

My tank has an LED Ikea dioder light strip on it, which has a bunch of different light settings. Perfect for my Christmas-themed tank! :)

Thats really cool Jennie!

I have wondered about this before but can the fish actually detect the coloured LED light? or is it not strong enough - like does it interrupt them sleeping if you use it at night or does it function like those moonlight settings that you get on some light fixtures, which dont disturb fishes sleeping habits?

I'm not sure, I've tried looking it up but I couldn't find a conclusive answer. What I found suggested that they can see color, but not in dim light. And these lights are pretty dim, so... :idont In any case, they've never shown any overt signs of distress when I have these lights on. I rarely leave it on this setting anyways, because it's kind of annoying to me, lol. You can also set it to solid colors (unchanging) or slowly shifting colors, and I prefer those settings.

Aw. How fun is that!

Too fun! :)santa

That's so cool! Thank you for posting the frost video :) It so cool!

That is soooo cool.

Where did you get the red and green glass beads? Is that something I could pick up at Micheals or are they special ones for fish tanks? :idont

Thanks Mr.B! It gives color-changing goldfish a whole new meaning :D lol

Thanks Lisa :) Yep, I just got these glass beads at Michael's. Believe it or not, they were actually the most expensive part of this setup! lol They were only about $7 total for both colors, but everything else was really cheap because it was either thrifted, or made from things I already had.

Very cute but we couldn't see their darling Santa Stockings hanging. (I'm assuming they are still hung) :)

Yes, the stockings are still there! You know what's funny... my husband and I don't even have stockings for ourselves yet, but we do have them for the fish! :lol3

Thank you Becs! The tank is in the dining room, a really central room on the main floor of our house, so it makes the whole house seem festive! :)santa

Thank you Deb! The fish do get super excited whenever I change the tank decor. That is, until they realize the new decor is not edible. :rofl

Thanks! I found them at a couple different thrift stores; any items made solely of glass are typically aquarium safe. Check your local thrift stores! :D
