They also make rectangular tanks like that, bars, dinner tables, and desks. I have seen em all for sale. Really there just like a regular tank you can add filtration and a heater you'll just have to live with the site of it.

Though if you wish to cut corners:

Okay, all of those tanks are fine except for the sink, lol...I would think the constant temperature changes from hand washing would really disrupt the fish!

I think you would have the same issue with the toilet tank every time you flushed unless you put extra money into setting up the incoming water to the correct temperature. Most toilets are only connect with cold water lines. Honestly I really don't see any of them being all that practical except the TV one. It's a stand though and was just build to house an aquarium/equipment.

I hate show off type tanks unless they're the TV ones. The rest look dumb and non-functioning. Sure cool conceptually but terrible IRL. And for the $700 coffee table tank I can build another drip system to house another 40 bettas.

Who am I? Well I am a Junior Member of the International Betta Congress and a breeder of white HMPKs, red dragon HMPKs, black/red dragon HMPKs, metallic multi HMPKs, blue masked HMPKs, and now multi color HMs. Soon to add black HMs. I will be showing in New Breeder class in fall of 2012.

Yeah but you still have a cold water tank against a tank that needs a constant temperature. There would be some fluctuation every time it was flushed even with a heater. The acrylic (I really hope it's not glass) layers would only protect so much. I do think they are pretty to look at but I find them very impractical. I like to build computers and I would consider using them to make the oil cooled aquarium towers but never to put fish in.

I agree with Mekko though if I had the money to spend on a tank like that I would use it to make a drip system for more Bettas. You know what makes Bettas better? More Bettas!
