iMacquarium: The iMac Fish Tank

iMacquarium by Jake Harms

Last month, we ran a storyon Jake Harms’s iMacquariums, and it was one of the most popular items for the month of October. So, of course we had to include it in our gift guide! Each iMac case (obtained from local recyclers) is fitted with a 3.5-gallon tank with a built-in filter and lights. While the iMacquarium’s tank is too small for typical goldfish, it’s spacious enough to accommodate 1-3 betta fish, fancy guppies, dwarf frogs, red claw crabs or other small tropical fish.

Price: $250

Small and easy to to transport, they fold together when you need them and break down easily when you’re done.
