fish tank coffee table.

I see them for crazy cash for order. But anyone ever made their own. Any tips?

That coffee table looks awesome, a lot nicer than the ones that sell for 800+ at least IMO.

here are a few pictures of my coffee table aquarium. everything is included filter, lighting, heater. there's only one plug running from the table. i love it! it's 45 gals. very easy to work on because it's only 13" deep but it's about 54" long and 23" wide. because of the length the fish have a great deal of horizontal swimming space. i had a marine biologist at that fish place/ that pet place look it over and she said it really is an ideal environment for fish as long as i don't keep fish that grow tall like angel fish or discus. i have rams and dwarf gouramis, mollys, platys, glo fish, shrimp, and bumble bee cat fish. my tank is heavily planted with low light plants. good luck with your aquarium.

well i guess that depends on how much money you have. it cost about $1,000.00. that included shipping. the showroom closest to us is in north jersey. i live in pa. we thought about picking it up (i think the shipping was about $250.00) but we would've had to rent a truck and pay gas and tolls so it was worth it to just pay for the shipping. a big tractor trailer pulled up to our house. it was crazy! the thing was packaged so well it could have been shipped around the world with no damage i'm sure. you know they have all kinds of different shapes of coffee tables. just google aqua vim and you'll see everything they have. lots of cool stuff. also if you click the photo icon under my name you can see more pics of my aquarium.

This is SUCH a cool idea. I wish I lived in a house where I could do this--living with two male renters makes for some wild nights and I'm pretty sure my fishies wouldn't appreciate ending up vibrating all night long. ^_^;;
