If you really love the thought of showing off exotic fish in an aquarium but your space is limited or of an unusual shape, consider a custom fish tank. Available in just about any size, style and design, manufacturers will be able to design a custom fish tank for you.
Custom fish tanks built is the wall is the newer trend and since they usually are designed with either glass or acrylic on four sides, it would be available to be seen from either side, giving an aquarium appearance in two different rooms. These tanks are usually about six inches wide and will only accommodate smaller species of aquatic life. They can be fitted with a removable frame to give the impression of artwork.
Another custom fish tank can be designed to fit into an opening between two rooms, allowing a partial blocking of the space by the aquarium, allowing viewing from at least three sides. It can be attached to the fourth wall or you can have a custom designed stand built to make it part of the wall.
Custom Design Tank To Fit Décor
Larger tanks require more room, but a custom fish tank built has a half-round tank can stand against a wall, taking up less floor space than a traditional rectangular tank needs. Large, vertical tanks in a hexagon shape are also widely used to allow a bigger tank in less floor space. Half-hexagon with four sides and even a bow-shaped custom fish tank can be found for your home.
Stands for a custom fish tank can also be special ordered, and in the case of an unusually shaped tank will have to be, in the finish of your choice. This way the stand is not just an obvious aquarium holder but also a piece of furniture in your home.
Larger stands can be used for storing food and other accessories for your custom fish tank as well as holding it, but having a functional piece, will also help save storage space. Another advantage of a custom fish tank is that installation can be arranged to have all electrical needs for the heater, air filter and lights built in as well, hiding the unsightly array of wires.
Built in tanks will still allow access for necessary cleaning, feeding and maintenance, but they will be more a port of your home and not like an odd addition.
