Fish are one of the most under-appreciated pets that one can own. We have a huge collection of aquariums this time. These aquariums are very stylish and appealing. It is very easy to maintain aquarium at home. It does increase the beauty of your home and becomes one of the best decorative items.

At the same time you will feel close to nature. An aquarium is a vivarium consisting of at least one transparent side in which water-dwelling plants or animals are kept. Fish keepers use aquarium to keep fish, invertebrates, amphibians, marine mammals, turtles, and aquatic plants. Aquariums have been fashioned into coffee tables, sinks, and even toilets.

An aquarium can range from a small glass bowl containing less than 1 liter of water to immense public aquarium that house entire ecosystems such as kelp forests. Tell anyone that you have pet fish and they will ask you why you choose something so insanely boring. Well, as any fish keeper will tell you, that is far from the truth.

Not only are fish great pets that can recognize their owners, be trained, and generally entertain you for hours, but they give you the opportunity to explore some of the most interesting and cool options to pick from or build as their home. Here’s a selection of some of the coolest fish tanks and aquariums for your favorite fish.

1984 Fish Bowl

1984 Fish Bowl

Life inside a goldfish bowl ain’t a lot of fun without a little privacy! The intention with 1984 was to create a true sense of abode for our beloved little friends; solid white walls and three generous (domed) portholes with views from the hallway to the living room.

The fishbowl was inspired by and takes its name from the novel “1984″ by George Orwell.The design is innovative in meeting the needs of a non-human species, a design which ironically engages our own instinctive curiosity. The domed portholes effectively create an ethereal magnifying lens for compelling entertainment. The fish use the opaque walls for refuge and peer out the windows when curiosity strikes.

A great way to relieve goldfish suffering from separation anxiety? Not quite. Michal Shabtiali’s portable Fish Bowl design, a student project, is aimed at kids with divorced parents. It allows you to “walk” your fish, despite the fact that fish don’t have legs and can’t walk. We’re not totally convinced here, but it’s an interesting concept nevertheless.

One Pot, Two Lives

One Pot, Two Lives

One Pot, Two Lives

This is a planter and a fish tank. You put your regularly potted plant in this pot on top, and a goldfish on the bottom. What could they provide for each other, you might ask? Waste! Yes, the fishes turn their eaten bait remnants into nutrients for the plant, while the water fed to the plant is filtered as it passes though and becomes clean for the fish. It is a totally natural and lovely system.
