A buyer's guide to designer fish tanks

Fish tanks are becoming a must-have feature for any style-conscious home designer. With an increasing range of designer tanks, it is not just the fish that surprises the visitors. This article offers a guide to the world of designer home aquariums.

Designer tanks

BiOrb tanks These unique looking tanks have a stylistic design by using Plexiglas acrylic.
Due to their larger water capacity, they provide the fish with around ten times more space than a traditional fish bowl. The filtration system in the tanks is also very advanced in that it is hidden away, almost silent and keeps the water cleaner and clearer for a longer period of time. Fluval edge Fluval fish tanks are designed and manufactured by Rolf Hagen Ltd.
The edge is the world's first 3D water cube aquarium that offers a full 360-degree viewing. Thanks to a partially glass-sealed top, the tank can be filled up to the very brim. The tank also has a hidden aperture oxygen exchange and a floating base design for a clean contemporary look. Aquatlantis cubic With an emphasis on style and design, Aqua aquariums offer an all-in-one design cubed aquarium.
Designed to be ultra stylish in both the tank and stand, it is also efficient with its filtration system and lighting. Again, the filtration system on this tank is designed to be as quiet as possible.
