really cool tank!

It would be a cool tank to have, but a real pain in the neck to take care of!

the only thing im curious with on this tank is how do they put substrate/plants into the orbs without the lids... if they really can do that, it would be incredibly awkward or hard to accomplish.

I assume those are plastic plants, right?

I think this would be awesome if shrimp were placed in it.

I had a neighbor when I was young who had something similar to this that she made out of the hardware for milking cows. I think she only had substrate in the lower containers. Anyway it was pretty neat but I don't really remember how she maintained it

Someone had a tank very similar to this. He has a tank journal too.

If someone owns this tank they must need a really long arm to clean or do whatever things at the bottom part.

*EDIT*
Wait a minute. How's this in nano tank section?

it does have those couplings between the orbs, although this is only useful during setup, if they even are supposed to come apart.

Not really a great tank (?) for fish, since the surface area is poor. Sad when a tank is merely for looks without consideration of the fishes' needs. It's kinda like those dinky wall-mounted betta tanks, or those really tall column tanks...ugh.
