Yeah a nice rounded chrome corner at the top would have helped

Yeah. I've always thought the pool with a surrounding tank would be cool. Especially if it was placed so that it was able to be supported above ground with a bar underneath it. Excuse me- let me go chase my dream... Lol

Woahh...and you can see the fish while swimming and outside of the pool.

You'd have to be able to prevent pool water splashing into the tank though

the Skateboard ramp tank was very cool !
ALTHOUGH....is it soundproof?
would the fish become stressed from the constant bang and crash of the skateboard hitting the tank? (same reason we don't tap on the glass)


The gumball machine tank was also very clever and colorful too.

Don't wanna come off wrong but please make sure you read over the recent threads before posting questions. The tanks they build are normally 1.25" acrylic, but the front panel on the skateboard tank was bumped up to 2"... plus they can only use urethane "indoor" wheels on their boards, which are softer.
