If Goldfish Ruled The World

There's something fishy going on in the world....

This idea was inspired by Lostdogs Goldfish Roaming Bowl.

In the beginning, there was a plastic sphere with a goldfish in it. Around that sphere came another sphere, which could be spun round, whilst the inner sphere stayed level. The outer had the world drawn on it, and lo, the Goldfish Globe was created, and was ornamentally placed on a stand for all to admire.

       Cool. I want one. ++++   

       The words Aquatlas and Gaiaquarium spring to mind.   

       I think the people here will vote for anything with the word "fish" in it -- ironically. Nice one, [daaisy].

       "why?"...hmmm, i suppose i didn't really consider that....
daaisy, Mar 27 2006

       But not widely-known-to-exist... mmh?

       A spherical fish tank has been patented and the word Globe was used but I read nothing to make me think that Globe refered to anything other than the spherical shape.   

       If the hinges are very low friction, the fish could spin the thing themselves.

       Certainly gets my vote.

       Baked (see [Jhomrighaus])
Twist, Mar 29 2006

       It's not baked. The novelty in the idea is the dual sphere aspect.

       Bun anyway - I always wanted clear tubing round the walls of the office our fish could swim through, providing them with adventure and us with something interesting to watch!

       Just use a plastic goldfish then.

       Echo - If Goldfish Ruled the Universe:   

       Fill a clear Goldfish Globe with several flat-fish: the Earth's tectonic plates; and have a perma-inflated puffer fish float beneath the flat-fish sphere's surface: he represents the Earth's core.   

       Then get some fireflies to hover around the room to represent stars, and maybe get a big ball of burning gas to represent the sun.

       If Goldfish Rul;er the world...   

       ...cats would be kept in little glass bowls.

       ...filled with water.
