Default No clean tank???

I stumbled across this video on YouTube. Though I would share it. Pretty cool even with the simple overflow concept. Would definatly make water changes in small jars easier.

Nice concept! I guess it kind of functions like a reverse UGF.

Neat idea, but of course they go on to say how great they are for bettas, even though there's no heater and practically no horizontal space.

Make something like this is a wider, 5-gallon size, and we've got a neat product. Until then, it's just like any other fish-misery hotel.

Yeah I agree. The heater and filter I think are still necessary. Unless heavily heavily planted. But the concept is pretty cool

They could easily make that wider than it is tall I'd think, couldn't they? As is it isn't very appropriate for a betta...

I think the concern becomes the size of the "special area" where waste collects below the substrate, and how effectively simple water pressure would be at emptying that reservoir.

As it is, it is not at all appropriate for any species of fish. There's zero swimming space horizontally.

No but it could be shrimp safe haha. I suppose if they did it horizontally they would add more outflow bars to acomadate the length?
