Self-cleaning aquarium for all parents

A rite of passage just got a lot easier

Reef One

Now this, friends, is one invention worth crowing about: a self-cleaning fish tank. It's something that practically every parent must endure at some point, when a child brings home that first goldfish from the school carnival.

Unlike standard aquariums, the "biOrb" has a special ceramic system that "provides a massive home for filter bacteria," according to its U.K. distributor, Reef One. The only maintenance required is a regular changing of the cartridge in the aquarium's built-in filter.

T3 adds that the spherical tanks come in a variety of colors and can hold 15 liters of water, enough for six fish to cohabitate comfortably as long as none of them is a Sabretooth Tetra.
