This is a huge hit! It looks so cool when completed! It's a bit of work, but definitely worth it.
Mix gelatin according to package directions. Use clear jello to dilute.
Place the jelly beans in the bowl.
When gelatin is cool, BUT NOT SET, pour it slowly into the Fish bowl. Be careful not to move the candies around, because the coloring may run.
Allow to cool for just a little while (you don't want stiff gelatin when trying to place fish and foliage in bowl).
When gelatin is just starting to set (ie: it's not watery... set just enough to hold something in place) add your "foliage" and fishies, placing them where you want them with strands of spaghetti (helpful when moving things around so your gelatin isn't destroyed he he).
Refrigerate your fish bowl until you wish to serve it.
