Bed tank

Could someone give me plans for a bed tank... headboard...Drawers underneath bed could take out put tanks?

Bed looks like this sort of drawers are bigger though

Sorry if there is spelling and grammer mistakes above. I am not good with either.
If you have fish or plants you need to get rid of pm me I am always looking for more.

You would wake up with damp sheets :3 best way to do it would be cut the drawer doors off and make them all into plywood tanks but still that's a lot of evaporation soaking into a mattress and it could get moldy

That would make sense. Haven't you heard? We make yogurt, not sense.

True didn`t think of it. You could put a glass top on the tank.

Here is my plan:

Edit: Won`t take plan from google sketchup. Sorry :(

Even with a top any where air leaks, the water will go and your sheets will attract it because of the fabric being dry and the nature of these things - dip a corner of a napkin in water and you'll see what i mean, it will catch any little bit of fabric and soak it all

That would make sense. Haven't you heard? We make yogurt, not sense.

What if I put fabric on top of the tank?

Ummm, how much time do you spend looking at your bed??

Varkolak is right - it's called capillary action.

125 - BGK, chanchito cichlid, pictus cats, silver dollars, palmas bichir
125 - cichlids (severums, bolivian rams, chocolate), rainbows ( turquoise, red), loaches (angelicus, zebra, kuhli and horseface), plecos (BN, RL and clown), denison barbs, tiretrack eel, pearl gouramis, betta
90 - Congo tetras, african knife, upside down cats, spotted ctenopoma, kribensis, delhezzi bichir
2.5 - betta

If i were you i would scratch the tank being the main "frame" of the bed and maybe go with something a bit different but in the same general idea... But it wont be cheap by any means.. Like i said instead of the tank being the "frame" and everything on top why not have a custom headboard made out of plexi or acrylic? Imho that would be a WAY cool thing to do the hole thing wouldnt have to be plexi/acrylic maybe from the matress down the "stand(cant be seen to much)" and a side entrence from either side to get to your pump. And custom tank above all that.. I prob wouldnt go with glass in cass of a "hit" or other things that can happen while in bed >;) But if you can imagine it like the way i can see it would be one amazing addition to a bedroom!

Good luck doing water changes and other regular maintenance without getting your sheets all wet. :D

I think it's generally a bad idea to put an aquarium in a piece of furniture that is regularly slept on/sat on/etc etc... ;) I personally for instance like to be able to throw myself onto a bed without being afraid that I might accidentally break a tank. It would at the very least cause unnecessary stress to the fish... Also you have to run wires in there for the lights...

In short, I think the idea is totally nuts and I wouldn't ever recommend anybody to do such a thing.
