There’s a general rule that the cooler a fish tank is, the more of a pain in the butt it is to clean the tank, feed the fish, and take care of the occasional belly up moment of unfortunateness. The exception to this rule is brought to you by fish tanks that don’t have any real fish in them, and the best of these don’t even have any water and can be stuffed in a closet when you’re not in a fishy mood. The Ocean Theater is all this and more, offering the excitement of a seascape with the convenience of an off switch.
So it’s basically a light, a clock, and an iPod dock (it’s got speakers and an audio jack) that can project fish and sharks and dolphins and stuff onto its own touch sensitive dome, or a wall. Yes, it’s extremely Japanese, but you can actually buy this one for about $250 (!) from Japan Trend Shop.
