    I can't believe nobody has said anything about the 2nd place aquarium.

    My 2 cents:
    Technically, if you read about it, it is pretty neat.
    Aesthetically ... I am almost speechless. I think it should have a gnome on it. If you have a living room that will match that thing, I want to see it. :)

    Sorry, Matt. I have to say, I'm not impressed. What jellyfish would fit in a tank, that small? :-/

    2nd place just looks tacky and well, a bad environment for fish.

    I do however like the Ehiem Aquastyle 35. :)

    Moon jellies they say.

    Do not underestimate the power of bee hives. :)



    Aye. Me too.

    It is a dry heat, yeah right !
    For the Jellyfish system you can order the Panula on-line and grow them out. But better suited would be upside down jellyfish.

    And yup I am speechless on the second one, amazed it even garnered an award, but hey different strokes right.:cheesy:

    I would be extremely worried about attacks from Winnie the Pooh
    those goldfish are going to get fed up of the big yellow bear always reaching in for the honey

    :) Ah but note the portal in the side of the bowl specially designed to catch his paw. The fish will be like a good martini - shaken, not stirred.
