Custom Fish Tank – Silverfish Aquarium

custom-fish-tank.jpegWant to get a lot of "wow's!" from friends. Check out this custom fish tank from Octopus Studios. It's called the Silverfish Aquarium, and comes as a kit which will turn into a fully functional fish tank. The kit components include the following:

This custom fish tank has about a 60 gallon capacity, and would make a great tropical freshwater aquarium. It's about 3.3 feet or a metre cubed. The fish tank stand measures 1.1 metres in length, and stands 0.9 of a metre tall. It comes standard in three colors; black, cherry brown, and carbon fibre. They will allow you to choose from over 30 other textures and colors if desired. Truly custom!

Octopus Studios is based on the Cote d’Azur, France, and delivers their custom fish tank kits worldwide. Looks like a fun tank!

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.

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.
