The Fantastic Cardboard Aquarium

About a year ago, while I was at UC Santa Cruz, I was keeping three tanks in my dorm room and I realized that half the fun of fish keeping is sharing your tanks with people.

And so, beneath my bed, I created the The Fantastic Cardboard Aquarium.

Outside of our room -


Inside the room -


Entrance open -


It's all cardboard -


Oriental Dancing Trout (White Clouds) paludarium -



Snacks for my visitors -

Good work. I was a little disappointed though. I was hoping to see someone trying to keep fish in a cardboard box.

College = beer or lots of free time. Obviously, he's not a beer drinker. Or maybe he's both, but just not a good student. I know that was the case with me.
