Nope, but it's pretty neat. Thanks for sharing.

+++EDIT+++
I'd hate to see what happens if one of the seals springs a leak.

The tank works through pretty simple physics - water sinks in air, and air rises through water. Since the holes in the tank are below water, air cannot enter them (we must assume the rest of the tank is air- and water-tight). You can do the same thing at home with a pint glass and a sink full of water. Let all the air out of the glass, and pull it upside down out of the water - you'll pull water up in it until the lip of the glass breaks the surface of the water in the sink.

A better analogy woudl be the dog bowls, with the two litter bottle fileld with water inverted over it, and as the dog drinks water, more comes out, but the entire bottles doesnt just spill on the floor, imagine the two liter bottle being the fish tank, and the bowl being the feeding station....ya know...new idea for a betta tank..
