Aquavista's Panoramic Wall-Mount Aquarium

Here's an alternative to hanging flat panel TVs on your wall: Aquavista's wall-mountable "wide screen" aquariums. Each self-contained aquarium includes a LCD touch-screen control panel, CO2 generator, automatic feeder, T5 lighting, filtration, and heater.

As you can probably guess with the inclusion of the electronic CO2 generator, Aquavista Panoramic Aquariums are designed for freshwater planted aquariums.  Aquavista does not recommend their aquariums for saltwater.

And the touch screen control?

The touch screen computer panel displays the date and time and even displays room and water temperature. The LCD panel is embedded on the side of each aquarium and allows you to easily program different settings for the automatic feeder, filtration, air pump, illumination, and CO2 generator. For instance, you can program what time you want to feed the fish, what time the lights in the aquarium should be on, and how frequently the CO2 generator should be on. The panel also can be locked to prevent tampering.

The Panoramic line is available in two lengths: a 58" 20 gallon model ($995 USD) and a 70" 25 gallon model ($1195 USD).  Either model is only 6 inches thick in keeping with its wall-mount design so aquascaping will present a significant challenge. The aquariums are available in your choice of silver or black brushed aluminum bezels.

For aquarists with limited wall space, Aquavista also manufacturers a smaller 6.6 gallon, 26" x 4.3" x 26" wall-mounted aquarium called the Aquavista 500 (seen on right).  The Aquavista 500 is designed to mimic a framed picture so it's no surprise there are many more frame choices available for this model.

Aquavista is based in Menlo Park, California.  They introduced their wall-mount aquariums in 2010 although not much coverage was given in aquarist media outlets.  They may not be ideal aquariums for serious aquatic enthusiasts, but I can imagine creative freshwater/planted displays using these wall-mount aquariums — or as Aquavista calls it, "living art."
