It Took 25 Hours of Continuous Concrete Pouring To Build This Aquarium

When the Miami's Patricia and Phillip Frost Museum of Science opens in 2016, it's going to have an absolutely bonkers aquarium—imagine a giant camera lens, tilted on its side, that lets visitors walk below the tank and look up into it. Building it, as you might expect, entailed a feat of perfectly-timed engineering. » 12/24/14 9:40am Wednesday 9:40am

Bathroom Sink Aquarium May Not Be the Best Place to Show Off Your Fish

Why put your very expensive aquarium out in the living room where everyone can see it? That's just silly. What you should do is stick it in the backroom so you can admire it while you're sitting on the toilet or brushing your teeth. That makes much more sense! Especially for $4,700, which is how much this ridiculous… » 10/01/08 5:20pm 10/01/08 5:20pm

LED Earth Globe Aquarium Addresses Poorly Represented Fish Bowl Rave…

As if fish had it bad enough. They're trapped in a tiny bowl, dependent on you to toss them a handful of dried shrimp from time to time, and now with this glass LED-illuminated globe bowl they're going to be forced into an underwater rave every time the lights go off. Still, this little $50 half gallon bowl is pretty… » 8/03/08 12:00pm 8/03/08 12:00pm

Azoo Eco-Desk Puts a Self-Cleaning Aquarium in Your Desk

I'm pretty sure Missy Elliot had something similar to Azoo's Eco-Desk, which has a self-cleaning tropical fish aquarium contained within a glass and aluminum body. Alas, hers was made by Lamborghini, so this is the poor man's / international female hip-hop star's iteration, but it's still a bit of cool for your… » 4/26/08 10:30pm 4/26/08 10:30pm

Moody Acquario: Bathing With The Fishes

There is something about aquariums that is just plain cool—and the Moody Acquario is definitely a cool bathtub. While I can see where the designers got the idea, the logic behind the $14,500 price tag is a little harder to fathom. I mean, the design itself is pretty basic and it doesn't look all that comfortable to… » 3/27/08 10:00pm 3/27/08 10:00pm

Aquadom Is Largest Cylindrical Aquarium on the Planet

Click to viewWhat do you do with a 25-meter-high acrylic glass cylinder, 238,000 gallons of sea water, 2,600 fish from 56 different species, and two divers? The Aquadom, the largest cylindrical aquarium in the world, that's what. In its core there's an elevator that travels through a cylinder of glass. As you will see… » 2/19/08 12:10pm 2/19/08 12:10pm

Spaceariums Put All Other Aquariums to Shame

Aquariums are pretty neato decorations, even if you need to imprison a bunch of fish that your kids will try to emancipate after they see Finding Nemo. But if you think a regular old aquarium is cool, take a gander at the Spacearium. Suspended from the ceiling, lit up all slick-like, and can be used as a room divider… » 1/23/08 1:20pm 1/23/08 1:20pm

Fish Bridge Connects Two Aquariums; if Only Fish Were Smart Enough to…

This sweet fish-tank setup features a gigantic water bridge that connects two tanks, allowing the fishy inhabitants to travel between the two habitats at their leisure. It was housed in the former Evanston, IL, coffee shop the Liquid Potion Lounge, and it was amazing. Sure, it's highly unlikely that the fish even… » 1/18/08 11:22am 1/18/08 11:22am

Videos of Cars Converted Into Aquariums


Have an old beater car sitting in the driveway that doesn't run and smells like ass? Grab a blowtorch, a hose and head to your nearest pet store. Apparently cars can make for some sweet looking aquariums —as you can see from the video of the car above which is currently on display in the Siam Paragon shopping center… » 12/07/07 6:20pm 12/07/07 6:20pm

Wall Mounted Aquarium is the Next Best Thing to a TV

Aqua Photo, a Korean based company, did the most logical thing to an aquarium, they mounted it on the wall and made it look like a TV. With specs that sound more like a TV rather than a fish tank, this aquarium has a 1460 x 640 cm measurement, 100 watt back light, and a 35 fish capacity. At $2132, the Aqua Photo Wall… » 9/07/07 10:04pm 9/07/07 10:04pm
