Kidding, right?

OK, they look cool, are incredibly impractical (water surface area...whats that?), and are horribly marketed (fancy goldfish in 5g and oscars in 10Gs?!?), but the real amusement comes from the price tag....the 10g makes the most 'pimped-out' 10g nano-reef look like milk-money.

Yow! Those look cool, but that's a lot of $$$!!! And Toirtis, that 10 gal tank, with shipping, comes to over $3200 CAD. That's one semester of my tuition!

That really is pretty cool looking! Would I pay over $2,000 for a 10 gal tank, not a chance. But it is a really cool idea.

it's an interesting idea - i wouldn't trust it for a long time, nor would i pay such an amount of money.

Very pricey, plus how the heck could you hang ten gallons of water from the ceiling? For the price, you'd better hang it right! And I don't even want to think about trying to clean and do pwc on something hanging from the ceiling.

Great looking tank, and interesting concept....until it comes time to clean it.
And that better be some serious hook it gets hung from - no drywall anchors, this thing gets bolted into a wooden wall stud or ceiling rafter!.
