Aquavista Panoramic Wall Aquarium

Rating: 5 out of 5
  • Currently 5.0/5.0

If you like aquariums but are afraid that you would kill all the fish by forgetting to feed them, then the Aquavista Panoramic Wall Aquarium is for you. This aquarium is so beautiful and so unobtrusive in the room, it looks like a window into the ocean. It is completely flat, like flat-screen TV, and it gets hang on the wall just like a TV, on its own brackets. It even has a control panel, to take care of light, feeding, temperature and other settings.
Aquavista's aquariums are fully contained systems. Everything is automatic: the aquarium comes with a built-in feeder and all you have to do is refill it once a month.
The aquarium comes completely pre-assembled, with not only an automatic feeder, but dual filtration, biological wet-dry and mechanical, heater, air pump and LED light. It also comes with a water siphon, gravel, fish net, algae scraper, filtration media, and glass cleaner. The system even has a carbon dioxide generator, which allows for photosynthesis for plants, if you decide to include them in the system.
The aquarium is pretty heavy, so use the provided brackets to make sure it is installed well. Its dimensions of the one we bought are 70.1" by 23.6" and only 5.9" wide, but there are even bigger models.
The Aquavista is designed for fresh water tropical fish, but you will have to get the fish yourself. Water too. The manufacturer provides the 3D submersible background, so that your fish can feel like it swims in the real coral reef or in an underwater forest. If you, or your fish, get tired of the background, you can order a new one.
The aquarium is made of shatter-proof acrylic glass.
You can put any fish you like, and after 4 weeks, when algae start to accumulate, you can add algae eating fish like Plecostomus, or Chinese algae eater.

We paid $1,174.99 for our aquarium at Fishtanksdirect.com, but I must admit it is really soothing to have it in the bedroom and watch it instead of TV.
