Tanked creates Unique Aquarium Bed Frame


Quite a while ago, Chad Otocinco’s home in Florida was shown with the fish tanks he had created for him. I remember the articles quite well, since I was impressed with the unique aquarium bed frame he had in his bedroom.  It was quite different as it was a large salt water tank that arched over the sleeper’s head so they can see the fish swimming above and all around them as they open their eyes in the morning.

It seems that Tanked went ahead and created another one as a specialty item for a furniture store:

This 650 gallon fish tank rests just above your head while you sleep. Is that comforting or not? I personally would never trust any 650 gallon tank above me ever, but that’s just me. This amazing tank was created by Acrylic Tank Manufacturing for Jamestown, North Carolina’s Furnitureland South and was featured on an episode of Animal Planet’s Tanked program.

I find the idea of sleeping under the soothing picture of live fish swimming above and aside me very interesting. Of course spending somewhere it the neighborhood of 12,000.00 seems too steep for my budget at the moment, but one can dream.  To be honest I am not sure the floor of my present house can stand the weight of a 650 gallon tank – that’s over three tons of water and decorations sitting on the floor!

Unique Aquarium Bed Frame “Floats” Overhead

This unique aquarium bed frame incorporates the lighting for people right into the fish tank, since there does not appear to be any room for side tables or other ledges where lighting could be incorporated. Adding a strip light onto the bottom of the arch would detract from the look, so they solved the problem by putting lights (with shades) right under water.  The only problem I see with a tank like that is for people who like to keep things on a bedtable beside them, such as books and telephone – there isn’t any room for them. Of course, if I had the tank, I think I could live with those handicaps and find a place somewhere else in the room for them…
