I'm guessing the tower is made by sucking all the air out of the tower, then the water gets sucked into the void.
For some reason, don't think this is a good idea for a betta, at least. If he was at the top and suddenly needed air it'd be quite a way to get down and back up to get to the air, since I doubt they plan ahead. but it looks awesome for other fish :D

It's actually not by filling it with water... I used to play with water like that. Go fill up your sink, take a glass cup, and put it in on it's side so that it fills with water. The tip it upside down and lift-- until the edge of the submerged end of the glass hits the surface the water won't come out. You could always blow a little bubble into the top though.

I've got two more weird ones for you guys. The matching fish tank sink to go with the toilet and the bird cage fish tank?..... Some of these tanks on the link below are horrible. Like the cd player one.... blasting music beside a creature thats sensitive to sound?!

Yes, I believe this is caused by air not being the the cup to push the water down, so technically the water has to stay up in the cup because there's no other particles to push it down. I was never the best at physics though. xD
And the air bubble would eventually run out of oxygen for the fish anyways, so you'd have to keep filling it D;

assuming you left an inch or so on the top, I think it would be pretty fine with a weekly refill of fresh air. ;D

It's a cool idea though, I agree.
I've always loved the idea of a fish coffee table. xD

Darn it. Now I want to fill my bathroom full of fish. A toilet fish tank for when you first enter. The sink fish bowl to wash your hands. Then complete it all with a fishtank bathtub so you can relax and unwind with the fishes. XD

hahaha yes! ^
I've always wanted to swim with my fish so they could see that I can be a water-dweller too. I thought it would be pretty funny to double-bag some fish and float them in a pool so you could "swim" with them. I wonder how confused they'd be haha
