    Got an old CRT monitor sitting in your cupboard, leveling up it's dust gathering skills ? Fancy making a new home for your fish that will actually make them an interesting sight ? Well, this should be just what you're looking for: A CRT Fishtank!

    I like the "circuit board" background, makes it look like he just hollowed out a monitor and dropped the fish in!

    I think this could be an excellent compliment to those "fish tank cases" that were all the rage a few years back.
