45 Modern Aquarium Designs

From 3D-Printed Fish Tanks to Living Desktop Ecosystems

— August 14, 2015 — Art & Design
These modern aquarium designs make it easier than ever to bring a bit of the ocean into your home. Whether you're looking for a low-maintenance pet or you are trying to add some sea-inspired decor to a room, these impressive fish tanks are the perfect choice.

One of the most interesting features found in contemporary aquarium designs is a focus on sustainability. Beyond simply housing sea creatures, these fish tanks can also support plant life. Some of these sustainable aquarium designs include symbiotic flower pots, self-watering herb kits and garden-growing fish tanks.

Aside from fostering an aquatic ecosystem, fish tanks can also serve as a visual focal point in a space. Whether it is your living room or an office cubicle, aquariums can brighten up a room with the touch of nature. These decorative aquarium designs include fish-filled kitchen islands, park-inspired workstations and even aquarium desk dividers.
