Aquarium in a Vase

Everyone knows that an aquarium is an excellent decoration for an apartment. But not everyone knows that you can turn an ordinary flower vase into an aquarium. The aquarium in a vase has three undeniable advantages. Firstly, it does not take up much space and can easily be placed on a window sill or bookshelf. Secondly, caring for the aquarium in the vase is simple and does not take a lot of time from its owner. Thirdly, if you get bored with the aquarium hobby, then getting rid of such an aquarium will not be a particular problem. So, what do you need to make a mini-aquarium? A small vase, several aquatic plants and small pebbles. A vase can have any shape, but still a round vessel is preferable. Aquatic plants are better to take the most unpretentious - for example, a rotape or cabombo.
