How To Decorate Your Aquarium For The Holidays

There's not much out there commercially in terms of Christmas decorations for aquariums, but no matter. With a little ingenuity, you can still make your fish tank festive. Here are some ideas.

While not explicitly sold as holiday decor, red and green aquarium pebbles are easy to find and can help set a festive mood.



Nature Aquarium polished glass gravel, for instance, is available in both colors from Amazon.


Make a Wrapping Paper Backdrop
