Since aquariums are boring, you need be a little more innovative if you want your scaly friends to have a funky home. That's where a Wall Mounted Aquarium comes into play. There are a number of different wall mounted aquariums on the market, but my favourite is the aquarium available at Hammacher Schlemmer for $299.
Wall Mounted Aquarium:
This space-saving 6 1/2-gallon aquarium hangs on your wall like a painting, freeing up valuable floor or shelf space while providing 400" sq. of viewing area and room for up to 12 tropical freshwater fish (not included). The unit is a mere 4 1/2" deep, so it will not protrude into your living area. The aquarium features advanced filtration, lighting, air pump and heating systems, all encased within a clear shatterproof PCB composite that provides a distortion-free view. A built-in side-mounted LCD monitors filtration, oxygen levels, and temperature for precise environment control. For safe wall hanging, a steel mounting bracket is included. (Due to the aquarium's weight, this bracket must be fixed to inner-wall studs.) Frame: 26" H x 26" L. (80 lbs. when filled with water)
