Fish Hotel

How modularly awesome is this Fish Hotel??

I’m totally smitten by the simplicity of taking something as common as the concept of a goldfish bowl and turning it into modern interior art! What a great way to liven up a dead corner – plant life or aquatic life; we now have options. :)

Also, seeing this made me think that this would be such a fun and hands-on way to teach children about the Jewish custom of “tashlich“. Not necessarily through this particular fish residence, but just by buying a goldfish/beta fish or two and letting the kids explore the science and nature of these simple water creatures (they don’t close their eyes when they sleep, for instance etc.). Viewing things first hand makes each custom much more personal and memorable. Just a thought…
