Fish Tank Herb Garden

So the Green Mommy new project was to create an herb garden out of my 30 gallon fish tank. All my fish died a few months ago. They were all pretty old and one by one they died over the last few months. The problem I have had with this fish tank is that we have a big beautiful bay window in our hallway and we can't use it for indoor gardening because of our dog and cat who eat all our houseplants. So I had moved my 30 gallon fish tank into the hallway, not realizing that all the sunlight would cause my fish tank to become a giant algae bloom. So I decided to clean it out, fill it with soil and plant some herbs. I figured if it got that much sunlight, then I would turn it into a tiny green house. So now we will have fresh herbs all year around in our tiny green house.

  1. This is a great idea. I don't know why I started thinking of this for my 29 gallon tank, but I'm glad I did. I look forward to a "fruitful" fish tank herb garden!
