Motor Home Aquarium - Any RVers live in and have experiences?

Not now, but in a couple years, I am planning on being on the road for 1+ years.

I won't be able to have a pond, or 3-5 fish tanks, so when I finally do head out I was wondering what the chances might be of having just one.

Thinking of one Betta originally and building a frame thing to keep it from moving around. Then my daughter got a Fluval Edge 6.6 and it has a cube tank of water, which I am borrowing ATM, and that looked very interesting and got me thinking of a little more.

Then wondering if something like that could work...

Just wondering if any one has done it? And problems and helpful hints...

I want to to get a plan in my mind so I can focus toward that ideal.

Interesting idea... I have never seen or heard of someone doing this before. You would obviously need something with a very tight fitting lid so that as you break and accelerate your aquarium doesn't slosh all over the floor. This could present issues with oxygen exchange...

I really don't see this working out personally. The constant weight transfer from the water moving back and forth would stress the seems to much.

Sounds like a great idea. Highly doubt it could be successfully pulled off,imo.

Thank you for posting the thoughts. I have some time to work on this idea.
Keep the thinking coming, I feel I will at least need the Betta, no fish would be so sad.

I think that you would have a lot of problems with all of the decorations and gravel/sand shifting constantly. It is a great idea, just most likely VERY hard to pull it off. Also, the fish might become stressed from all of the movement.

Good luck though!!

I've seen acrylic can be bent into odd shapes, could it be bent into a solid lid-less box? So there are no seems at all? Then a tight fitting and snug lid, which is only closed while on the road. Could that work? It would have to be screwed onto the surface aswell.
