In order to keep Betta fish alive and healthy, they need to be kept in warm water at temperatures that range between 74 to 78 degrees Fahrenheit, which requires a special Betta fish aquarium.
When he wanted to give these aquatic creatures as a pet to his girlfriend, Derek Trombello realized he would have to get inventive and create his own version of this heated fish tank. Going with the simple idea of a fairly inexpensive coffee pot that is self-heating and is already made of clear glass, he hacked the mechanics to create an automatic heat setting. LED lights were fitted into the lid for a special glowing effect.
This DIY Betta fish aquarium shows that ingenuity means not having to buy expensive equipment.
