A recent visit to the Long Beach Aquarium got me thinking about getting a fish or two--there's something very serene about watching fish float around in a little home created especially for them, lovingly designed by you (and maybe the guy who works in the Fish Dept at PetSmart). However, I do have some rather sensitive memories of my first fish-owning experience (not good, I was overzealous with the food flakes), and in a valiant attempt to ignore these memories, I went on the hunt for new and innovative fish bowls.
For the single or double aquarium inhabitants, there's the ode to TPS reports with this Office Tank, complete with an entire plastic office cubicle set up. Or, if you have a pair of Siamese fighting fish that don't enjoy sharing the same water, I'd recommend putting them to good use with these fishbowl bookends. And if you are a devious fish owner with flair for vintage items, this cat-watching fish bowl from the 30s would be ideal.
And finally, for those of you who have money to burn, wanting a school of fish, and about to remodel your kitchen, why not take buck the traditional tiled backsplash and install a fish tank backsplash instead? Although...it may remind you of cash-only Chinese seafood restaurants in Alhambra... -Grace
