The heads of the great philosophers put to good use. Kierkegaard, Plato, Aristotle, Spinoza, they're all here. The Nietzsche head's a bit leaky so is suggested for terrariums only.

       Could we have one designed to roam?

       In a pre-programmed path or steered by the fish following it's free will?

       I think they should be filled with the blood of the philosophers concerned and left to clot. Obviously you'd have to make a bust of every philosopher that way early in their career and chuck most of them away after a couple of centuries.

       "I don't know what it is, but whatever fish I put in my Socratiquarium will only eat gadflys."   

       Someone will have to train a fish that does not know it is in water.

       Somebody keeps letting the fish out of my Wittgenstein fishbowl!

       Free will is pre-programmed, don't you know?
