Wackiest Tanks: Where You See The Wackiest Of Tanks

Hi everyone,

I was just browsing on Google, and I thought I would just look up cool, weird, wacky tanks for Bettas or other fish. It's just interested to look at, so I am sharing it with you: (all pictures from Google)


#1 Tank - SpongeBob Squarepants Pineapple Fish Tank

This just proves that some people hate fish. Haha!

I kinda like the globe and falls tank. I don't like many of the vacuume pulled water column type tanks because fish aren't made to live at such low pressures as people like to pull in them due to their height (and that I have betta, which need air).

That looks like a fairly safe solution and has the little elegance that a water fall sound can give to it. Probably has excellent aeration properties and since the water flows in through the bottom it likely stays very clean.

The plants are probably attached to a ring that sits up inside the bottle-neck at the bottom where it screws or snugs into the base. I'd assume the tank would have less than a couple years life span before the fittings around the output failed and you found a comet face down in the filtration area wiggling in the air.

That one looks like it would turn out to be a cat drinking fountain/fish bowl.
I finally have seen the pineapple fishtank! Someone was telling me about it the other day...And I had no idea what they were talking about... I was all...you mean those houses that are supposed to go in the tank!? How could a fish live in that outside of a tank? Now ...I...Know...It all makes sense now.... It looks like it would be a pain to clean though.

Of course these tanks are NOT suitable for Bettas. But you have to admit, they are pretty cool looking.

This just remided me, why hasn't anyone made 10W asjustable heaters for bowls and smaller tanks?!?!? People could make a killing on that! HAHA on topic: I wish some of these "tanks" were bigger for bettas.

We could make a killing of that, too! Making cool tanks!

I would love a gumball dispenser tank... too cute! The spongebob idea would sell if it was at least 2 gallons.

If they made this tanks safe, (looking at the spillarium tank) and bigger, I would buy one! (:

Wow the Spillarium Fish Tank is a 5 gallon tank. No air for a betta but I wonder what could live in it. (Though it must be a real PITA to clean.)
