Didn't see this puppy around here so figured I would share:



If anyone has $5k - $8.5k lying around and wants to get it, they have 55, 58 & 73 gallon versions. I think some people on here have the skills to make a great planted tank out of this

Looks very uncomfortable for fish and Looks hard to plant (tank is tall and narrow).

I think that would pretty much have to be a salt water tank... and not a reef tank either.

How could you maintain a reef or planted tank in something like that?

Nobody buying a tank like that maintains it themselves anyway.

They're 12-14 inches wide, pretty comparable to most tanks. 28" tall though, definitely requires some long tools .

Those would be a huge PITA to plant...

If you can afford that, you can afford some scuba gear to help plant

How are you going to scuba in a 12" wide tank?

Even the gallery on Spacearium's website is all salt water. Sounds like a challenge!

Well, not scuba, but have your head and a shoulder underwater.
Someone should try it though.

I'm sorry, did y'all think I was kidding about the trained diving monkeys?

ace ventura's capuchin might help with some scaping...

Make the tank a full circle that you can have come in and out of the floor, on a circular track that goes around so you could scuba dive endlessly.
