Spillarium does not spill out fish
The Spillarium is a hybrid home ornament that spills water but not your precious live fish within – making it more than a half-decent home decorative fixture that will definitely have guests over puzzle it out, thanks to the wonders of optical illusion.
Water cascades from the side of the bowl – creating the illusion of an aquarium that’s perilously losing water – into the koi goldfish base, and back into the aquarium. A filter at the spout prevents daredevil fish from plunging over the falls. An integrated pump continuously cycles water through a sponge and charcoal filtration system and helps maintain the proper water level inside the aquarium. LED lights in the base cast a warm, colorful glow throughout the bowl. The five-gallon aquarium accommodates up to five fish. Includes artificial fish and plants, a fish net, cleaning brush, and fish food. Plugs into AC.
If you want something vastly different from the usual aquarium, the Spillarium is worth considering at $129.95 a pop, although don’t expect to rear a whole school of ornamental fish due to the limited space.
