Unique Fish Tanks, Aquariums and Bowls

A modern hub for your little pets

There are so many unique fish tanks, aquariums, bowls available in the marketplace nowadays. They all provide a safe, secure resting place for your little aqua pets.

As a kid, I used to own a regular fish tank - a rectangular glass piece that did not exactly stand out. In short, it looked boring. The options are now so varied that you have beautiful pieces that can gel aesthetically with your home décor. If you are on the lookout for some modern fish tank, bowl or aquarium designs then you have landed at the right place.

An aquarium need not be of the same old boring shape or structure anymore. They come in all sorts of varied sizes enabling your fishes to move around and explore more nooks and corners. On this page you will see some unique fish tanks, bowls, aquariums that caught my eye. The designs are stylish (not your standard aquarium) and the best part is that most (if not all) of these fish tanks are absolutely cheap and affordable.

Many people nowadays opt for such uniquely designed fish hubs because they lend an extra special touch to the whole home or office décor. So what are we waiting for? Let's take a look at some of these modern, unique fish tanks, bowls and aquariums.

Thank you Rajan for commenting. Yes, I can understand your hesitation to get new fishes. A couple of them breathed their last under my care too. It is not as easy as it looks.

Rajan Singh Jolly from From Mumbai, presently in Jalandhar, INDIA. on October 17, 2020:

Beautiful looking fish tanks. Certainly a fry cry from the standard rectangular aquariums. Keeping fish entails a lot of hard work. After keeping one for a few years and in the process losing several fish I decided not to keep any more fish. Each death was a jolt. I'd rather enjoy their beauty from afar.

I can understand, Bill. It is definitely not easy.

Bill Holland from Olympia, WA on October 13, 2020:

It would be fun to have some tropical fish, but I'm afraid I would want a very large fish tank, and then I would have so much extra work just keeping it running properly and cleaned, and I'm not willing to commit that kind of time to it....still, it would be nice to have!

Fishes are nice pets. I personally find cleaning the large aquarium a bit hard to handle. Thanks for stopping by :)

Stacy Harris from Hemet, Ca on December 09, 2012:

My daughter wants a turtle for Christmas. However, we know a turtle might be too much for her to handle. I think maybe a fish might be a better option. I absolutely think the USB fish tank is adorable.

Hey Dale! Even I was quite surprised when I came across the USB powered fish tank. It's the first time I am coming across such a type. Thanks for reading and commenting :)

Kalpana Iyer (author) from India on December 03, 2012:

Glad you enjoyed it SkeetyD! Yes, the rectangular fish tank is one of my favorites too :)

Dale Hyde from Tropical Paradise on Planet X on December 03, 2012:

Most interesting concepts shared within this hub on aquariums. :) I had no idea there were ones that could be powered via USB ports. Love the idea and I am going to have to delve deeper into these options!

Well done! Voted up, interesting and useful.
