World’s smallest aquarium

A Russian artist named Anatoly Konenko (aged 57) has designed and built the world’s smallest aquarium, measuring a miniscule 30mm wide by 24mm high & 14mm deep.

It fits in the palm of your hand and contains miniature zebra damin fish – the water has a tiny purification filter inside the glass cube and the zebra fish get to swim around in a whooping equivalent to two teaspoons of water!

The artist has been working on his designs for over three decades and has already been entered into the Guinness book of world records for crafting the worlds smallest book in 1996 that including printed text and hard binding.

And he’s not done yet; his future plans are to create a violin for a grasshopper, an alphabet inscribed on a hair, a zoo on a dragonflies wing, a model of the Eiffel tower on a mosquito’s antenna and a shoe for a flea!
