Bottomless Aquarium

I had heard about these before but never put much thought into it. Since I will be building an aquarium this weekend, if it turns out good I was thinking of making a tower to add to it. Anybody here have any experiance with these type of aquariums? My concern would be the water in the tower going stagnenant. How should I go about keeping the water fresh in the tower? Any advice is welcome!

i saw video on youtube of this tank and a guy showed how he did the water change,i cant find the link right now but im sure if you type in a few different names like topless aquarium and aquarium tower and such u might find it,there was some trick to emptying the water out of the tower and then filling it back up but it did not look too hard,onceu knew the trick it is just as easy to do as water changes in a regular tank, id be more concerned with the lack of a top on the bottom part of the aquarium,it would need to be some what covered to prevent jumpers

I've seen videos of those tanks on youtube. They look like a good topic of conversation if guests were to visit!

In my opinion, that's a tank for keepers, nor for fish---at least not Betta.

Picture the poor lost fish, caught in the tower, without the sense to dive to escape it.

Basically it's this concept. I know what you're talking about. Before I ended up with fish I watched a lot of tank videos and dreamed of one day having a place to have a nice aquarium.

Here it is:

I would try it but uh, if anyone has anything to say about me I am a disaster in the making I'd only make a mess. A big horrible horrible mess. Plus I'd worry about the fishies in the upper part. Though you got to admit it's probably pretty trippy for a fish.

I just watched a tonne of videos on those tanks. I think they look cool if the right fish are put in there. Most of the tank videos I watched were seriously overstocked. And there was one I watched with a gigantic fancy goldfish who got stuck because it couldn't figure out the tunnel.. I saw one of these with a betta before but it would be kinder to leave air at the top of the tower just in case.
