I am a nerd and very proud of it. I’ve always had a thing for science fiction. The appeal of traveling to the deep darkness of space and exploring uncharted territory has always had a great influence on my taste for movies and interests.
While I have been decorating aquariums for clients of mine to replicate scenes from Asia or underwater sunken ships or mermaids in Atlantis, my personal aquariums are all decorated with space ships and aliens from another planet. It’s actually pretty difficult to find tank ornaments of outer space and alien worlds. Honestly most of my own decor are non aquarium ornaments that I have carefully selected and prepared so that they would not have an adverse effect on my fish. But doing this without proper knowledge and the right preparation can kill the fish.
In this short guide, we’ll look at some of the yank ornaments that are sold today that will transform your aquarium into that nerdy piece of art that you’ve always wanted.
UFOs And Aliens
There is one aquarium decoration on sale that I love and that I have in my tank. It is of a flying saucer that had crash landed on a small hill the craft is beautifully painted and detailed and the best part of all, it has a cave that the fish can go into. Apart from this flying saucer, there is also another one that is more colorful and hooks onto the outlet tube of your filter so that it moves along with the bubbles. The other one I also know of is a more earthly looking satellite which also moves with the water current.
For aliens, there are about a dozen or so cute looking colorful aliens with various number of arms, legs and tentacles. This make a great addition to your theme, especially if you are going for the colorful space ship.
The Doctor Who Collection
No one proud enough to call themselves a nerd would not know of Doctor Who. The time traveling doctor has been a feature in our lives for decades. Now you can have your own Doctor Who Theme in your aquarium two.
The ornaments you can get for this theme include a really cool looking TARDIS. For those who do not know what this is, it’s an old London Police Box which the Doctor uses to travel.
For your aliens, you have the Daleks, which I have seen in Red and Yellow as well as the robots. You can either get a complete Cybermen figurine, or just its helmet which is super cool or a flat background decor.
It’s really a shame that no one created a figurine of the Doctor because I would do anything to get my hands on one.
If this is not enough, the last piece of alien decor you can get is an Alien Skull. The eye sockets allow the fish to go in and the skull cavity is very large so it makes an awesome cave for the fish. You can use this to create a superb rendition of Area 51 in Roswell.
These are some of the fish tank decorations that you can use to build your very own nerdy SciFi Theme. If you spend a little more time on the Internet I’m pretty sure you can find more to suit your interests.
