Toilet Tank Aquarium Brings New Bathroom Twist
With the Fish-n-Flush aquarium toilet tank, home builders can bring a new decorative twist to the bathroom, turning it into one of the most talked about rooms in the house.
The Fish-n-Flush is a clear two-piece toilet tank that replaces a standard toilet tank and contains a fully functioning aquarium inside. The insert can be filled with water for fish or left dry and used as a terrarium for a pet reptile or plants.
“We wanted to develop a product that had a dual purpose — to serve as a proper, fully functional toilet and also as a source of entertainment and conversation,” said Richard Quintana, CEO of AquaOne Technologies, Inc., the toilet’s inventor. “Fish-n-Flush is definitely an attention-getter.”
The patented aquarium fits most toilets and operates as a conventional interior tank, which is manufactured of clear PETG to ensure a strong and durable reservoir. The aquarium will accept fresh water, as well as salt, warm and tropical water. In addition, the 2.2-gallon aquarium piece can be easily removed for cleaning without obstructing the toilet from working. The toilet tank itself holds 2.5 gallons, which provides sufficient head pressure for proper flushing.
AquaOne worked with a marine biologist to develop the technology and produce a certified working aquarium. Fish-n-Flush comes with gravel, two plastic nine-inch plants, a dual filter system, LED lighting, a built-in feeder, fill valve, overflow tube, flapper, suction pump and two screws. The power level is set at a safe 12 volts.
“One of the key attractions to Fish-n-Flush is that we see the toilet serving as a great way to help toilet train young children as well as a fashion statement for the home owner who wants to have something unique,” Quintana added.
