Mini Fish Tank Jello: This fun kid’s birthday party treat is super easy to put together and adds a touch of whimsy to any pool or beach themed party. With only a few ingredients each child can have their very own edible fish tank full of jello, Swedish fish and nerds.
How to Make Mini Jello Aquariums
- Flat 7Up
- Unflavored Gelatin
- Blue food coloring
- Swedish mini fish
- Glass jars (6 ounce)
Can I use Blue Jello instead of Unflavored Jello?
Swedish soft and chewy fish are the best for adding to your mini fish tank jello jars. REGULAR SIZE VS MINI SIZE SWEDISH FISH. If you plan on making one large fish bowl then regular size fish are great. For these mini aquariums I recommend using Mini Swedish Fish. The mini is about half the size of a regular size fish.

TIPS FOR SUCCESSFUL MINI FISH TANK JELLO
- Cooling down the Jello and letting is slightly thicken will help prevent Nerds from bleeding color but you still may experience the color of the Nerds bleeding into the Jello some.
- Berry blue Jello is dark blue in color. If you want a lighter, more transparent blue color, then I recommend using yellow lemon Jello and adding a very small drop of blue food coloring to the mix. This will give you Caribbean blue colored “water.”
- Make these immediately before serving. Unfortunately these are NOT a make-ahead treat. The longer these sit, the more the Nerds will bleed and the gummy fish will become soggy.
- If serving for a party, I would suggest timing this so that the Jello sets right before you’re ready to eat them and then add the fish right before you serve them. If serving at a kids birthday party, you could even have the kids add their own fish to the top.
