I've seen many "unique" kinds of tanks being posted on this forums and others, I figure why not start a thread about it.
In my opinion, some of the "unique" tanks/set ups/ideas I have seen are quite nifty, some on the other hand are just... stupid!
What kind of different or unique tanks (or even tank set ups) have you seen?
Do you like/dislike them? Why?
Have you had any cool ideas you would like to share?
Here are a few I have seen and what I think of them.
(Photos/set ups/etc not mine)
If constructed properly, I think this kind of tank is really cool. They had one in my old dentists' office (about 6 feet long) that I just LOVED - there was a stand/compartment underneathe for equipment.
This is just sweet. (Obviously for like shrimp/snails or something and not gold fish, a 5gallon could be made for a Betta haha)
Inspired a cool idea - an emptied, cleaned out and planted Lava-Lamp.
Gotta do that someday!
While much too small for a Betta, these would be cool for little nano set ups around the house.
Could house shrimp/snails.
Though there are complications, that would make a cool deep-water tank.
(I would say inside of course to avoid temp fluctuations and/or other whether issues. Would look great in a sunroom, bathroom, office lobby, etc.)
And here are some stupid and outright cruel ideas.
These are sold in china, here's what another site says about them:
Well I thought Iíve seen it all when it comes to jewelery but not until I saw this in the newspapers today. In China there were live fish sold by vendors that are trapped in a pendant which can be sold as a necklace or a charm for your bag. They insisted that the small space that they had included three months in the sealed containers which contain water, fish food and two solid oxygen balls. Although this picture is not clear, itís the only one floating around in the internet.
