1. Mason jar– Place one fish in each jar and line them up along a sun window or on your table. Fighting fish are colourful little fish that get violent when with others, so these containers fit-for-one are just great.2. Pitcher – Build your little aquarium using a glass pitcher, and spruce it up with gravel and other aquarium decor. Set these up on a decorative side table with two smaller fishbowls and it looks like a complete set. It undoubtedly is an interesting conversation starter.3. Clear wine bottles – This should only be used for non-growing fish as it may become a tad tricky getting them out and cleaning the bottle. Wine bottles with wider necks are a great alternative to fishbowls. You can sit them straight or lay them on their side with additional support so that they won’t roll across the table.4. Glass Cookie Jar – These can be bought for less than P200 pesos at the Robinsons Outlet Store as well as The Japan Home Centre. They’re a little roomier and heavier so you’re sure that your toddler won’t be able to topple it over. Instead of the typical gravel and artificial seaweed, why not decorate this aquarium with little plastic toys? Fun, right?5. Science Beakers – For a little geeky twist, go for a science-inspired alternative fishbowl by using a beaker instead. They’re cheap (around P30 at Recto and a little less than P200 pesos at Mercury Drug Store), they come in different sizes, and they look quite interesting. Who’s ever seen a beaker used as decor?6. Juice dispenser – Broken (or even non-broken) juice dispensers like this one are a cool, fun piece that will have everybody amused. Just watch out for the little ones opening the tap.
