This may surprise you: owning an aquarium actually improves your state of mind and may even make you physically healthier. There are also numerous supposed feng shui benefits – don’t take our word for the latter, though.
Regardless of how much stock you put in mystical energy flows, a nice fish tank can easily improve the atmosphere of homes and offices. As a decoration, this aquarium boasts a unique design resembling an apartment building. You can stack several on top of each other for added effect, as well as painting the opaque sections to match your existing color scheme.
Apart from its unique look, however, this product comes with plenty of weaknesses. In the first place, its water capacity of under 2 gallons is far too small for many species, and the tanks remain separate even if you place one on top of another. It’s fairly easy to clean, but the small volume of water it holds means you’ll have to do this pretty frequently, further stressing the fish. There are small fish that can adapt, but please ask at the pet store before buying a fish that will only be unhappy in this kind of tank.
There’s no cover to keep jumping fish inside and cats outside. Fitting a filter, aerator, or heater to this tank (and still keeping its aesthetic concept intact) isn’t easy. So, while the modern design does look really nice and this fish tank is the perfect size for parking on a desk or counter, that’s really all it offers.
If you buy this as a gift or want to make a statement with your décor, and you’re willing to settle for a hardy type of fish, this might be a good option for you. If you need a high-quality aquarium that your aquatic pets will love, you should really look elsewhere though.
