To make a fish tank coffee table, you will need the following supplies:

Prepare Fish Tank:
Before attaching the fish tank to the table, you will need to prepare it. Remove any and all seals, plugs, and workings from the tank. Next, clean the tank with a mild soap and water solution.
Attach Fish Tank:
Now it’s time to attach the fish tank to the table. Start by measuring and marking where you will need to attach the tank. Apply glue and use a screwdriver to secure the tank to the table. Allow the glue to dry completely before proceeding.
