Mason Jar Aquarium

"Kids can create their own make-believe fish aquarium using a plastic mason jar. These darling mason jar aquariums make great bedroom decorations, and with the addition of submersible lights, make fun night lights too! Less mess and maintenance than a real fish tank, these mini aquariums are fun to make and look awesome. Kids can pick aquarium plants in their favorite colors and decide on fun fish or even a mermaid. The sky is the limit!"
