Aquavista Panoramic 6 Foot Wall Aquarium
 
3 Attachment(s)
Hello all my fellow fish buddies!

I had a quick question on this specific tank. It's a 6 foot 25 gallon hang on the wall aquarium. I have done my research on this neat tank! I'm interested in getting one for my living room only if it's a quality aquarium. Does anyone know anything or have their own that they can tell me about? I wasn't sure which thread this would go in either lol but I thought I try this one. I mean this is such a cool aquarium! It has a little automatic feeder, lighting, duel filtration system, heater and this is all controlled by a touch screen pad on the side!! Here are some pics if any of you have no seen this cool looking aquarium! I was also wondering what type of fish will be bale to go in here? I really would like put 3 to 4 1" Red Belly Piranha but then again I think maybe 3 or 4 red belly pacu or silver dollar fish. Something that will get along with a lot of other little fish. I mean it is a 6 foot aquarium.:-D

neat looking tank for sure, I cant comment if its a good one or not but the stocklist you are wanting is will get way to big for a 25 gallon.

Wow!!!
Very nice, but my pleasure is to take care of my fish, not just look at them so it's not for me
How do you do water change?
It should be heavy, hope you got strong wall
6 foot and 25g, $1400
it should be narrow, how the side?

To do water changes is from the top... that black frame comes off. They have that frame indifferent colors to match the room colors your tank is in but yeah the top comes off so you can do your water changes. It's mounted exactly like a flat screen t.v and with water its around 250 pounds. Here are the dimensions... 70.1, 23.6, 6 inches. It's narrow but the tank is just super cool!

Sadly you can't put much in there since its only 25 gallons. for that price why not get like a 250 gallon tank that you can put those fish into?

Welcome to the forum!

It sounds gimmicky. That's not bad but 6"???? I'd go with something larger as well. If you can build it into the wall why not extend it out a bit into the room and create a 3 sided affair that also still goes back into he wall? Even a 6' x 12" would be twice the gallonage, allow more substrate surface, not tie you into a specific filtration and lighting system and avoid the centralized control system... The gimmicky stuff. Sort of the same reason I dislike buying a TV with built in components, one thing goes and the whole system is screwed as parts are unique.

Have a support built to look like the wall underneath the tank to make it look like a built in that comes out a bit.

I agree with the others have said here.

While the tank is nice looking, it is not very practical as a working aquarium. 6ft long and only 25g makes the tank extremely narrow width wise, this is not suitable for any of the fish you have mentioned.

For the price of the tank, agree that you can buy an enormous 6ft long at least 125g tank for that new and equipment to go with it.

I think the 6ft is coming from the entire length. I do not believe the tank itself is 6ft long. But including those fancy sides may make it 6ft long. If you have the space, take that same amount of money and get a larger tank.

Boy everybody on this thread appears to be a crowd of ‘luddites’ who throws a wrench into the works. Say something helpful to our member solizaaron18.

I think we did.

I have a current case where my double convection self clean 30" wall oven with fancy touch control popped in a power bump. I am going to have a heck of a time getting a new controller board for it... replacement of the whole unit is not financially practical.

Unique stuff creates unique and often expensive problems.
