These Fish have Their Own Lookout Tower


Are you familiar with Koi? They are a large, carp-ish fish that is kept for decorative purposes. Originally bred in Japan, they are quite beautiful with bright colors and wonderful patterns. We had four in our water feature until they mysteriously disappeared. (Maybe a raccoon?) Anyways, YouTube user “TCHelmut” has the best koi pond that I have even seen! And the most unique. It’s basically an upside-down fish tank.

He built a lookout tower in the middle of his water feature. The fish are able to swim up the tower and back out as they please. Koi are so beautiful and this type of tank makes it much easier to enjoy how lovely they are! I bet they enjoy the view too. It would be awesome to have a few of these that are all different heights. Don’t you think? Just in case you’re curious… you can learn more about Koi here.

Here’s the video… Enjoy! If you’d like to see how the air was removed from the tower – check here.
