House of Fish

doll's house for fish

House of Fish is like any other large doll's house with its upper and lower floors; rooms full of minutely crafted furniture and accessories; connecting corridors; doorways and staircases.

Its biggest difference is that it is full of fish, happily swimming around from room to room and up and down the stairs. They can do this, because House of Fish is actually an aquarium.

Like any good doll's house, you can turn it around and swing open the back to reveal the insides of all the rooms simultaneously in cross section.

Alternatively, you can leave it facing forward, in which case the occasional guppy or swordtail will drift past a lace curtained window, or peer upwards from the attic skylight.

Habitrail for fish. So long as the water level in both tanks is the same height from the ground, it holds water in the tube. [Giblet, Aug 29 2007]

       Cool - I vote New Orleans shotgun style!   

       The best aquarium I ever saw had been built inside a large antique birdcage, with the glass flush against the bars, so it looked like the fish were flying around the cage.

       open the front and all the water would fall out.

       youd have better feed them in the kitchen, but the real trick will be getting them to use the bedrooms. and pumping bubbles through the vents. lol
