A Room with a View

By Leonard Ho - Posted Jun 11, 2014 09:00 AM
With a little ingenuity and a big helping hand from atmospheric pressure, you can create a water "watch tower" that appears to defy gravity. Koi seem to love it. Physics rocks!

Inspired by reddit/r/Aquariums Smile

Quick-Start Guide

  1. Make an acrylic tank.
  2. Turn it upside down.
  3. Attach to pond with bottom of the tank below the water line.
  4. Vacuum out the air.  Water fills the box.
  5. Enjoy confusing, entertaining, and empowering your pond fish.

I'm a passionate aquarist of over 30 years, a coral reef lover, and the blog editor for Advanced Aquarist. While aquarium gadgets interest me, it's really livestock (especially fish), artistry of aquariums, and "method behind the madness" processes that captivate my attention.
