Desktop Aquarium for Office or Home

This self-contained "Flow Aquarium" from Biorb is petite enough for a desktop (under 15 inches square) and operates with a low power wattage (12 volts).  Just add your own living things and enjoy the view through structurally-sound acrylic sides.  Via uncrate.com.


  1. Just a note; the lights that come with those desktop all-in-one tanks typically do not have enough power to grow any type of plant. Even the systems marketed specifically for planted tanks (e.g. Fluval Flora) come with only enough lighting to grow low-light plants (Java Fern, Anubias, Hygrophilia, etc). It can be done, but usually means putting together a system yourself. Here's my 5.5g tank on my desk at work:http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=U15f52X8cGQ

    If you're interested in planted aquariums check out plantedtank.net, it's a great place to start.

    1. Thanks for that comment, robotguy! That is a beautiful tank and a wonderful resource! The reviews for the biorb flow aquarium sound pretty weak.

  2. You have the neatest things! This aquarium is so cool.

  3. A large fish like the cichlid will need at least 55 gallons and the angelfish, at least 29 gallons. It is essential that your aquarium tank is able to hold the amount of water that all your fish need.Read This Page
