PIC: "It's like Totally Tubular, Dude"

I took this picture of my 35G Swim-Thru last night.

With an entire 35G to swim about in, I catch 5 of my 9 Tiger Barbs in one of the tubes connecting the tanks. Notice that other than the one that darted out as I took the photo, the others aren't blurred? That's because they are just floating there.

That is the fish equivalent of having a 3500 square foot house and just hanging out in a closet.

Maybe the magnification of the tube makes the "outside world" look really trippy dude?

LOl - I know there's a good joke in there somewhere about "coming out of the closet" - I just couldn't find it.

That's too funny! Cool setup.

Are you asking about the "Swim-Thru" design?

It's just a funky design that TruVu makes. It is basically two 17 gallon tanks up on end connected by two 6 inch long, 4 inch diameter tubes. The fish can swim back and forth between the two tanks.

I just like the look. It makes for a unique conversation piece in my living room.
