This aquarium was created by graphic designer Kelsey Kronmiller and showcased on her blog, The Pixelist.
The theme is based on Super Mario Bros. World 8-1, and includes two castles for the fish to swim through, spray painted pvc pipes, a staircase and a flag. Kronmiller used a paper backdrop to pull the whole thing together. She purchased the LEGOs by the cup, and in total, used eight large and four small cups-worth.
Kronmiller was inspired by a tank she saw a few years back. Since she didn’t have the space for it then she spent this time dreaming up her ideas for the tank.
