My son talks about that type of thing all the time.... too bad ya can't make a tunnel or tube from one tank to another... I can't wait to show him the video.
The only place we have seen anything that connects two areas is the huge tank at the mall. And that isn't happening at home!!


But.... now you've done it... how big are the tanks? what fish are in there living together? details...details...!!! How do you seal it so that the water stays in the tube. Trying to understand the physics.

My, that's one big fishie! :-)

Your bridge is surprisingly sleek, I was expecting something a bit more rough looking! If I suddenly had a large budget and an urge to redecorate / move in a new place, I think it'd be awesome to have a similar bridge or two that'd go between rooms. Sure, cleaning wouldn't be easy, but the novelty of having fishes moving between rooms would be special!

I think I have watched the video 10 times now. I can see that the down tube is a good 6-8 inches below the surface. How do they know to go up into the tube in the first place? Are they just that curious that they go swimming where ever water is... so they just go? Are they all too big to turn around so just carry on forward? And I'm not quite sure how you get the tube filled... is there a trap door/hole in the top surface or is it air tight or a completely open channel?
Amazing fish!! wow! Oh and Welcome to TFK!!
