Octagon Coffee Table Aquarium

coffee-table-fish-tank.jpegI must say, I really like the idea of this Octagon Coffee Table Aquarium. I was doing some hunting for new fish tanks, and came across this odd fish tank. Talk about a conversation piece! This 40 gallon aquarium is 30" x 30" x 16" h.

The Octagon Coffee Table Aquarium sits on a black acrylic pedestal, and would sure look great in any fish lover's home. It comes with just about everything, but the water and fish. A two-stage submersible filter pump, lighting, and fake, decorative plants are included. Blue glass gravel is illuminated by the lighting system to produce a sweet looking fish tank.

Place a fish tank toilet in the bathroom, and this coffee table aquarium in the living room, combined with a hanging fish tank, and you'd have quite a setup.

There were two positive reviews on this fish tank with the following to say:

'It's not very space-consuming, so it's a wonderful fit for our apartment. One problem however is the power cord that is a little hard to hide, as well as the condensation that forms where the water filter is. We were able to hide the cords with a fish rug and covered the condensation with a picture. Overall, this is a wonderful table. VERY much RECOMMENDED!'

The other review commented on the size of the aquarium too. They write, 'It's gotten to the point that I've considered doing away with a lot of my furniture to make room for the new additions! With this product, I don't really have to sacrifice much. Of course, I wouldn't recommend this tank in a high-traffic area of the house, and if you have small children it's a definite no-no, but between my dog, my cats, my birds, and my other 8 tanks (mostly 55 gallon tanks)it's nice to have a fascinating conversation piece of a grow-out tank!'

Stock the aquarium with a pleco or two, to keep the algae down, and you'd not only have a functional coffee table, but an aesthetically pleasing piece of furniture to enjoy.

Kuhli Loach

The Kuhli Loach comes from flowing rivers located in such spots as Thailand, Borneo, and Sumatra. The hardy fish in this picture by Kasia thrives in the small community, or semi-aggressive fish tank.

kuhli-loach.jpg

The Kuhli Loach (pronounced "coolie" ) is a scavenger that swims and plays at the bottom of the aquarium. You'll notice in the picture of this fish that it has no scales. The Kuhli Loach prefers fine sand or smooth gravel. It spends much of it's time slithering around rocks and through the substrate in search of food. Don't be surprised to find this fish burrowing into the gravel. A member of the Cobitidae family, it's generally nocturnal, and most active at night. Other aspects of the Kuhli Loach include:

  • A peaceful, shy fish
  • pH: is best between 5.9 - 6.5 for the Kuhli Loach
  • Grows to around 3 - 4 inches
  • Prefers 78 - 86 F degree water
  • Not a schooling fish, but prefers company of others

A member of the genus Pangio, this fish is great for the beginning aquarium owner. With proper care, the Kuhli Loach can survive a number of years. Feed the Kuhli carnivorous foods. They also enjoy having freeze-dried bloodworms, and tubifex in their diet.

If you're looking for a fish that is a little different, the Kuhli Loach, and it's eel-shaped body is a fun fish to have. The freshwater fish compatibility chart can give you a good idea of tank mates for the Kuhli Loach.
