Fish Tank Friday: Flying Fish

[ Direct Link ]

By Evan Ackerman

Fish tanks, by definition, are restrictive, and don’t give fish the freedom to explore the upper atmosphere. It’s a real problem, especially if you have a flying fish, like this one. Much like the Festo Air_ray, this fish is most likely filled with helium and controlled by servo-powered fins. There aren’t many more details, but it seems to have been an entry in a German airship regatta.
