I am concerned about the built in filtration. I would like to do a little Tang community with this. I will forced to use gravel since part of the built in feature is a UGF.

Any Comments?

It looks like a great idea, but there's something weird about it. I can't quite put my finger on what it is. Maybe it's because it reminds me of a kitchen sink with glass on it. I don't know....

I think you could achieve the same "look" with a regular tank you built a small frame for and got a piece of plexiglass to cover it. At least it would be rectangular, like a coffee table, unlike this which is square. I think it might be cheaper, too.

But what do I know? It's just an opinion. What does your girlfriend think? :P

My husband, you know the non fish person, would never go for it. I'm still trying to convince him that a 120 gallon on one whole wall of the living room would be "normal." :roll:

A fish tank table is a nice idea though.

... for that matter, you could do the same thing with one of those inflateable kiddy pools... i saw one at the toy store for $25. . . mabey $20 for the plexi, boom! instant 150 gal! :D

That seems a little sketchy.

I think that is the coolest thing I have ever seen. Other than the fact that wouldn't the air circulation be a little bit restrictive????

There is a guy in Vancouver selling a a sucata tortoise with a coffee table enclosure. I would love one.

Jonathan, have you seen this one? It's a little cheaper than the other. And there are many more!

I'm gonna try to talk my husband into getting the lamp aquarium on this page! I'd be great for my albino betta!

Think he'll go for it? :?: (NOT!) :lol:

I'm still trying to talk him into a 120 gallon! :roll:
