Wall Aquariums – AquaVista Wall Aquariums

I'm always looking for unique fish tanks, and really like the AquaVista 500 wall aquarium from AquaVista.

With many wall aquariums, you'll find inadequate filtration, and difficulty heating, cleaning, and maintaining the tank.  AquaVista solves that by including both an under gravel filter and a biological wet/dry filtration system.

The tank is also equipped with a lighting system that is bright and vibrant, and an air pump to keep your water oxygenated.

On the side of the AquaVista 500 is a programmable controller with keypad and lcd screen.  Heating levels are easily programmed in.

While all those necessary features make this one of the best designed wall aquariums out there, AquaVista added more value to this beautiful tank.

How would you like to have easily changeable backgrounds and interchangeable frames?  Well you can.  How cool is that!

Take a look at this video review of the AquaVista 500 wall aquarium, and then check out their other wall aquarium below; the Panoramic Wall Aquarium.

AquaVista also offers a Panoramic Wall Aquarium.

This fish tank would look great above a fireplace or couch!

Like the AquaVista 500, the Panoramic Wall Aquarium is full of the necessary features.  It includes a double filtration system, which is nice with the larger size, lighting, air pump, and heating controlled by the programmable controller.

But then AquaVista again adds more value with a carbon dioxide infusion system, which is perfect for helping maintain live aquarium plants.

Also included is an automatic fish feeder!

Available in 5 or 6 feet lengths, the AquaVista Panoramic Wall Aquarium is a great conversation piece.

I'm pretty impressed with what AquaVista has done.  It's not surprising they have over eight patents out, issued or pending, for their designs.

BiOrb Aquarium

biorb-aquarium.jpegI was browsing online and came across the BiOrb Aquarium. At first glance, it looks like an ordinary goldfish bowl. It's far from it though! The BiOrb fish tank actually has a special 5-stage filtration system. If you've ever had goldfish in a bowl, you know how quickly the water can turn nasty and dirty. Ughh.

Changing the cartridges looks simple. There's no need to empty out the water, which saves time. The aquarium bowl is actually ten times stronger than a regular goldfish bowl. But I still don't suggest dropping it!

In the base there's an air pump and filter hidden away. A light in the lid to illuminates your fish, but you have to buy the biOrb heater seperately.

So is it really that good? I read through some of the reviews of the BiOrb Aquarium, and one thing was agreed upon. This fish tank is not good for goldfish. They're just too dirty for it. This would make a great aquarium for smaller fish, such as neon tetras.

It was also suggested that the larger 16 gallon BiOrb aquarium was easier to maintain than the 8 gallon. Personally, I change the water in my betta bowls every two to three weeks, and do a monthly water change in the eclipse aquarium. The betta bowls only have a few gallons of water in them, and stay clean. I'd guess a 16 gallon tank like this wouldn't take any more work than a regular 20 gallon aquarium. It would definitely take up less space.
