Hanging aquariums

On this website the second article down has a picture of hanging aquariums and a link to the store with more pictures and where you can buy them for $5000!

They look super thin and I'd be constantly paranoid about it falling, not to mention me falling when doing maintenance on a step ladder lol. But still, if you had money to blow and stocked it with small fish and plants it would be pretty sweet.

The super-thinness is what concerns me. I'd feel bad for the fish who would only have so much room to turn around, and would have to swim in a constant back and forth motion...i like the concept though. There's a show on Animal Planet called Tanked, and it's crazy the stuff they create fish tanks out of.

*After seeing the link and reading the measurements, i guess it wouldnt be that bad for the fish. Still, though..

Can you imagine trying to do a real top-to-bottom cleaning? yeech. Nice architectural item designed by someone who'd never have to clean it!

You just use a bottle brush.

I think it's pretty cruel. I did see some hanging bowls on ebay, though. They're thicker and attach right onto the wall. I think that it would be cool for a dorm room. I kind of want one for mine. I want a betta XD

I agree it would be cruel if you put a big fish in their, however a nice planted FW setup with a big school of really small fish could be nice.

Plus I think the thinness is somewhat of an optical illusion. These are the sizes:

- Height ( 28.5") 5 Foot ( 28.5") 6 Foot ( 28.5") 8 foot
- Width ( 59") ( 71") ( 95")
- Depth ( 14") ( 12") ( 12")

No more narrow than a "standard" tank, then.
Would be very neat with a large school of tetras...

Cruel?! Haha, I'd rather live in that in someone's 5 or 10g.

Judging by the looks of the digs, I'm betting they have a service that comes in and maintains the tanks
