An Aquatic Chair!!!

Sounds crazy huh. This is my current project for myself. It's going to be about 90 gallons. I'm deciding whether to pick Salt Water Fish or Fresh water Fish. What type of fish would you recommend? This is going to be challenging esp. for the filtration system. I plan to put it underneath the seat but the issue is how is it going to flow. What kind of pump would you recommend? Let me know what you think! Check out my progress by going to http://uniqueaquarium.tripod.com

I think that as a pilot project, I'd pick some hardy freshwater fish. I'm still green to SW, but I think it'd be easier to try it with freshwater first, and then perfect it, and then go with the SW. Some nice, hardy FW fish would probably do well. I'd have the outlet for the filter on the opposite side of the intake, as you could plumb just under the actual seat of the chair making that easier, plus you'll make sure there is adequate water circulation...good luck on the project, lemme know how it turns out for ya. It's an interesting concept. =]

The lighting for a SW would be the problem. I'd go FW unless you can find a way to light it.

What about gas exchange?

a sealed top like that just spells trouble for your ph if you do a sw.

Keep it coming...Thanks =D

Thanks everyone! Those were some good points you guys pointed out. I didn't know that SW fish needed to get lightning. I'd keep that in mind. Keep the advice coming and i'll keep you udpated with this project on my site.

Another thing to think about is feeding daily.

just make the arms of the chair lift up so you can feed and do water changes.
