Has anyone ever seen this aquarium before?

I was searching on the Internet and came across this aquarium that cleans. I was wondering how everyone felt about this because I was very interested. Also could this idea be used on a larger scale?

Are they pouring in untreated tap water? Why pay $70 for a bottle with no filter? This is hardly an aquarium. Get a 5 gallon tank and use your own siphon to change 10% of the water a week using Prime, and you'll have a happier Betta.

It seems pointless. It doesn't really clean itself, you just pour new water in as old water comes out. You'll still have to get all the crap off the bottom and stuff. For $70 though, get yourself a nice 10g kit. I got a marineland 10g LED kit for 60 bucks. This is just a jar with a spout on top

I agree with what's been said. I honestly think someone could make something like this themselves for much less than $70.

Could someone be able to use this on a large scale to just change the water in a tank?

Walmart has 29.99 10 gallon kits. Filter lights hood. This is the exact one. Not a recent pic but the stock lights grow plants very well. Those plants all started As 1 single plant.

I found that one online on my walmart's website for about $38 and a lot of the reviews are very negative. Hows your personal experience with it

Well....it's a simple yet effective design. The hob filter is adjustable which is nice the hood is sturdy and the lights have a reflective surface behind them so although they are incandescent they work well

I think this a great idea better than a bowl people are NEVER going to clean. At least this thing is simpler for lazy peeps.

I recommend the ten from Wally World. In my opinion it's a great deal for a kit. They have a 20 high for 50 and I saw today an led upgrade for the 10 gallon for 20 bucks.

To me that is an ice tea jug that they accidentally put the spigot on top

If you are looking for a self sustaining aquarium this is not it but there is info out there. I am trying to make one now. PM me if you want me to give you some links.
