Non-Traditional Aquariums for the Modern Home

As the weather turns colder and the outside color palette tends toward hues of gray, brown, and, well…more gray, I find myself thinking of things that remind me of more tropical (and colorful!) destinations. I've always had a thing for fishtanks, but a pet store style aquarium doesn't always fit nicely into a room's decor.

Here are a few gorgeous tanks that aren't your standard glass rectangle variety--and most probably aren't in your standard budget, either. But it's fun to dream!

  1. A luscious dining room (that most of us can only dream about), from home-designing via furnishism
  2. A wonderful room divider in a modern kitchen setting from spacearium via freshome
  3. A stately foyer tank from living color
  4. Another gorgeous spacearium living room setup via freshome
  5. see more about spacearium tanks on Apartment Therapy here : Spacearium by Aquarium ASP
  6. A macquarium by Jake Harms via babble
  7. A lovely bathroom divider tank from aquarium-design. (Who doesn't want to shower while looking at fish?)
  8. A nifty tv tank from aquahobby via demilked
  9. Fish that match the decor! from Aquarium Design Group
  10. A hanging tank from gadgether
  11. Art or aquarium? another stunning tank from Aquarium Design Group
