They will allow you to choose from over 30 other textures and colors if desired. Truly custom!

Update!  A reader, Alyssa, and myself both emailed the company for a price quote.  Currently the aquarium's cost is 2200 Euros, with a shipping charge of 350 Euros to the States.  That's about $3000 U.S.

  1. Hi Alyssa,

  4. hi i just was email from the comany and they said it cost 2200 Euros and in canadian money that is $ 3,336.52 and thats not including shipping!

  5. Hi Meg!

    I thought it was a little spendy too. I’m gonna keep a look out for more unique aquariums, hopefully lower in price.

  6. yeah looks ‘cool’ but doesnt actually look too suitable for any living fish to me.. surface area to water volume ratio doesnt seem to be high enough… does anyone that designed this contraption actually keep fish or were they just hoping to make some money of unsuspecting rich people without a clue?? and what are people supposed to do about getting dead fish out when they sink to the bottom?? some crucial points dont seem to have been considered in creating this water holding ornament. just because it holds water does not make it a suitable to be an aquarium…

  7. Hey Eric… No fish are included.

    Miss Goody… I haven’t seen the aquarium in person. You raise some good questions. I would guess there’s got to be a suitable way to remove dead fish. You could email them at their website if you’re curious.

  8. wow what a tank how mwonderful t is to see somthing rather contemporary awww just imagiain the wonderful time all the fisf must have for them it must be christmas everyday awwww how induldently magnificent (BTW u do knw im bein sarcastic

  9. Yes this looks like a wonderful set up…if you like your aquarium fish dead.

  10. omg thats alot of money.i’m going to get it when i’m older though, because i want to be a marine biologist when i’m older.I want to make this world a better place and make good money.

  11. thomas: $3300 U.S.

    morgan: by then you’ll be building your own custom aquarium 🙂

  12. It looks like an amazing tank, My question is, does it come with a custom fish net if a fish dies out of reach?

  13. The price for the Silverfish is around $3,400. I was wondering, for that price is it glass or a cheap plastic? I would only assume glass because of the price but i’m not sure.

  14. 3,000? Ripoff city. If your fish died in the bottom it would be stuck there. That’s retarded ridiculous.

  15. this tank looks really cool but idk it seems disfunctional. it would be really hard to clean but i have seen worse designs.

  16. hey i have bin looking every were for this tank but I cant find it and that makes me so mad that you cant buy . and i dont even know what the price is for this dang thing

  17. it looks pretty difficult to clean. and if its as difficult as i think, then this is absolutely the stupidest design ever.

  18. This fish tank is awesome 🙂 i have no idea of the livability for the fish but it’s amazing 🙂
    and yeah, cleaning it would be a days work LOL but they do say the magnetic cleaners are included so… there is a way LOL but still… way to expensive to buy and experiment LOL

  19. its looks pretty cool i guess ……… but it looks complicated to clean …. can u take it apart to clean !!!????

  20. Is this available in Gujarat ???

    Yes,,,, Please Tell me where ? and what its price…

  21. Not sure if they send to India. Please contact sales [at] octopusstudios [dot] com.


  22. ok i bought on of these things and it is huge each bowl is the size of my head. i havent ploped any fish in yet im doing the cycling thing (never heard of it but i want to doing this right for the ammount i paid) as for cleaning im gonna get a couple of algea eating fish but manual cleaning is awkward but doable. if you want a amazing looking tank get this one.

  23. That’s cool. If you comment back here once it’s set up, I’ll post your pics if you have any. Mike
