Fish Tank Friday: ZeroEdge Aquarium

zeroedge

By Evan Ackerman

I’m not sure how well the concept of an infinity pool translates to fish… I mean, where they’re from really is an infinity pool. I guess if you’re going to keep them captive in a little box, though, it’d be nice to make it as infinity-y as possible, which is what the ZeroEdge aquarium is designed to do. The aquarium is constructed of nothing but sheets of borderless glass, but the cool part is that it’s designed so that water is continually flowing over the sides, into a drain around the base of the tank. This keeps the water circulating very effectively, and means you don’t need any ugly pumps or anything inside the tank itself.

The only thing you really have to worry about is, of course, escaping fish, since the water level is the same as the sides of the tank. Not that your fish necessarily want to escape, but some of the not-so-nice species aren’t exactly subtle when it comes to their turf (so to speak):

We do not recommend putting to many Damsels together as they are considered a rough crowd and someone is going over.

Does it make me a bad person that I’d consider buying this tank specifically to see that?

An entire ZeroEdge tank setup costs about $1k, or the tanks by themselves are about half that.
