he should have built in a bunch of small pots/fake rocks all over tha back side and place in a shit load of real plants and and in like 3 months that woulda look bad ass....but his way is cool i should start showing my tanks i have a smaller set up just like this dudes but mine is just as i said he should have done. but real nice my friend

Riker626 - 6 years ago
First I have seen this, VERY cool. But got a science question, would the fish experience negative pressure when going up the tank?

At the surface there would be basic nominal pressure, the deeper they go there would be more. So when they go up the inverted tank it should go negative ... right?
Grag Eiliel
Grag Eiliel - 6 years ago
But you wouldnt suspect it to be dangerous? I imagine fish are instinctually smart enough to know when they are experiencing too many atmospheres
Rik Skywalker
Rik Skywalker - 6 years ago
Yup the pressure goes down, up the column. You can see the fish react to the negative pressure.
Dennis Maksimov
Dennis Maksimov - 6 years ago
Yeah kinda ...I'm an engineer and i like your thinking.
at the surface of the water we only have atmospheric pressure (about 14 psi) if we go one inch bellow the surface we have the weight of the water (Density*gravity*height) + pressure of the air.

Once we create a upside down tank. we suck out the air inside it, But how does the water rise? The pressure outside pushes the water in.
so we get pressure= air pressure-(weight of water above water line)
so its negative relative to the pressure at the surface.
Jakob Pedersen
Jakob Pedersen - 6 years ago
Riker626 yup. In fact, the water column may at max be about 10m tall above the water surface. Any higher, and the pressure is so low that the water boil/evaporates. So a construction such as this might hurt a fish, as air inside of them will expand.

Also sjyaw is actually wrong, although for most practical purposes in everyday life it makes little difference. Air also provides pressure here on the surface, and the higher you go, the lower the pressure. How much pressure a column of air/liquid provides depends upon the density(weight) of the substance.
sjyaw - 6 years ago
...Wrong! It's all relative to the water surface. If you had a tank of water in a hot air balloon basket measured the pressure at 300mm deep, then did the same at sea level it would measure the same and since water cannot be compressed it is unaffected by altitude so it would weigh the sameas well . pressure only changes the deeper you go in water in conjunction with the weight of the surrounding water. It's not affected if you're the same distance below the surface of the water but at a different altitude. Hope this answers your question.

varuscelli - 6 years ago
sjyaw, what would you estimate the capacity of your upside-down tank to be?  Either in gallons or liters?  Looks to me that it would be between 29 and 40 U.S. gallons.  We are trying to determine how large a tank we might be able to invert over my father's pond.  We own a 90-gallon tank and might be tempted to try that one, but the sheer amount of water is a bit intimidating.
varuscelli - 6 years ago
Thank you for sharing your thoughts on this!  :-)
sjyaw - 6 years ago
it depends on the footprint of your tank, if it's a tall tank that's a lot of weight on the rim of the tank, you will need to make a custom support for the tank and don't forget that the weight of the water will be sucking the tank sides in, oposite to a normal tank set up, even on the 35gallon tank I made with 1/4" glass it bowed in the front and back a good 3/8". Also if you're setting it up where it's going to be in direct sunlight you will have to clean the glass daily with algea growth. The last thing to consider is the ratio of the tank to overall pond size, if you only have a small pond and you fit a large tank on top the water in the tank will raise in temperate by 10s of degrees promoting blanket weed and bacteria. Just a few things to think about, hope this helps. sjyaw

I did this with my 125 Gallon indoor terrarium and my turtles seem to enjoy it when I had it installed. I used a 40 gallon tank for the upper part and filled it to where there was still 8 inches of air space and put a floating dock inside and sat the basking lights on top of the glass. I will make a video when I set it back up again because I did not put it back last time I cleaned their tanks.

Wow, did you put a thermometer in there? I'd have thought with that little trapped air space and no ventilation it'd be crazy hot.

sjyaw I have a concern on this idea. Eventually the water in that upside down tank will become oxygen free. Then it becomes a death zone for the Koi. It would be better to have two nearly identical tanks, cut holes in their bottoms, and insert a tube, with a pump inside to pull water through from one side to the other. Either a screen end for smaller tube, or make a genuine water bridge, with the pump as a permanent fixture pointing one way from the bridge. Use a long extension tube for your wetvac to pump the air out of the bridge. Not sure might get away with the pump being placed in one tank, and pointing either up, or down too.
SalsaShark42 - 6 years ago
Or just put a powerhead in there and that should circulate enough water to keep the oxygen levels safe...

I've heard that some kind of fish like goldfish may be too confused and panic to get out of this kind of tank in time and soon be dead because not enough O2 for them...(my friend did this once and that happened)
(some kind of fish(Carp may not) also feels comfortable to gasping some air from the surface of water)

daang - if a fish farts inthere all the vacuum is gone :))
echodelta9 - 7 years ago
No, it will show the amount of fish farting over time. A fish at the top will find it easier to fart or belch than at the surface. If it were 33 feet tall the fish would boil at it got near the top (high vacuum). Seriously I don't know how high it is safe for most fish to build this. Think the physics over, It's like us in a high altitude jet without pressurization. It would be like a ride on the space elevator without air. As the fish goes up it's swim bladder expands it goes up faster and, oops there is a point of no going back. It's the buoyancy equivalent of a black hole.

+Riker626 ok Mr. private pilot, i don't even think YOU know what you're talking about.
Riker626 - 6 years ago
The water would be pulling down (it wants to go out the bottom), this would create low pressure, like being on very tall mountain. A major problem with a human sized tank is this pressure change would be experienced VERY fast. Not as fast as an airplane window being blown out at altitude but still fast enough to kill. If the pressure was low enough (a big enough tank) people would not be able to absorb oxygen in their lungs. Then there is the bends.

Athziri Rios not hard to do and it is caused by low pressure vacuum

Fish breathe by filtring an oxygen in water... get educated bro...
KodRaiN - 8 years ago
how would you continually remove the air that dissolves out of the water?  I wonder what that's like for the fish, going from positive to negative pressure.  
Yan Nadeau
Yan Nadeau - 7 years ago
+KodRaiN you are right about that my mistake
KodRaiN - 7 years ago
+Yan Nadeau In fact, it's really easy to find the pressure.  say that glass section is 2 feet tall, the pressure at the very top is -0.86 PSI (water is .43psi/foot)
KodRaiN - 7 years ago
What?  The water above the water level of the pond is under negative pressure.  It is only held in place by a vacuum.  Because of this, any gasses come out of solution easier, in addition to any bubbles forming under the raised section, eventually air will accumulate at the top.

+KodRaiN pressure of the window is negative, pressure of water is equal

Irredeano Anno because of the atmospheric pressur on the water in the bassin! As the air is remove in the tank it create a negative pressure thus the positive pressure push the water up in the column

Looks seriously fricking awesome, but isn't it a death trap? What if one needs air and is trapped up in there? Will they just die, or know how to escape the tank and get air?
AboveWaterAquarium - 8 years ago
Lots of water movement naturally along with various gasses that travel up into the Above Water Aquarium from the pond bottom debris.

Fish need oxygen in the water to breathe. That's why they have gills...
Moki Yoki
Moki Yoki - 8 years ago
um fish dont need to breath air?
froschkonig - 8 years ago
Uhh... There's no pressure in there, the fish just swims back the way it came. The water has oxygen in it so they can breathe the same in there as they could out of there

Looks fantastic. I did the same thing last year with a regular goldfish bowl in a pond. The fish loved it and spent a lot of time up in it looking about. It was funny actually as they were all up in it facing the direction of the sun first thing each morning. Was kind of like a solarium for them. 
Your pond looks great, hope all your little fish are enjoying their new view.

I think this is the best idea I have seen in years. I am about to instal my own one over the next few weeks.

I have built the tank and stand and it's ready to be fitted. I have some ideas with references/ concerned about air flow and the dreaded green stuff.

I thought that i would install a small clear air line tube into the silicone joint from the top of the tank to link up to a pump to circulate the water , also I hope this will help keep the glass clean/ cleaner and remove air buildup at the top! I will also try to test for pressures in the tank as my tank is 1400 mm high x 400 mm x 400 mm

I am very new to ponds and tanks so please go easy on me! I will wait till the weather changes before I do my video. Love this video an the idea keep up the good work dude. Regards scott

Algae hasn't been a problem so far, have got 2 x 36 watt and a smaller 12 watt UV lamps running 24/7 so far it's kept the algae at bay.
TheJodo2010 - 9 years ago
That is awesome. It's almost like a skyscraper for the fish bc they can get a bird's eye view of the pond... no pun intended. My favorite part is you using the vacuum to fill up the tank lol. Genius.

Simon WoodburyForget

+Signora Mariangiongiangela Water moving at all doesn't mean it circulates. Water is only going to spin in circles in it, because it has no reason to come out.
Nikola Tesla
Nikola Tesla - 7 years ago
+Simon WoodburyForget it does circulate, the water moves a lot also with only the waterfall
Simon WoodburyForget
Simon WoodburyForget - 7 years ago
+Evelyn Lee Barney It doesn't, also you have another issue, which would be a chance of creating a gas pocket, you need to suck out the water and gas from the top of the vacuum and put it back into the tank, otherwise it will some day cause the water to be pushed out of the vacuum and over flow the entire pond.

+GMoneyQ69 No jetting water up wont do anything, because it's a vacuum jetting water up will cause the water to pressurize and create a wall right before the vacuum/container. Most of the water will go around the container unless it's able to come out. Without counter what ever floats will never come out. You should pull water from the top of it back into the tank which could be around 90% more effective.

The fish displace the water when they enter the tank and water from the main pond then re-enters when they leave, ensuring the water is mixed. 
sjyaw - 9 years ago
It hasn't been a problem so far, at the left hand side you can see the waterfall and almost directly underneath it I have my pump sucking out 15,000 ltr an hour, when you feed the fish and they come to the top of the tank to feed they really churn up the water and then leave leave a mess behind but if you watch the tank over half an hour it clears itself. All I have to do in the summer is clean the glass every other day the way you would with a normal tank it's the only bit that has become a bit of a chore.

Hi, very cool. I just wonder, what presure and forces are there..I Am thinking of very large sized version....about 1x1x2m tall....what thickness of the glass should it be?..I guess the highest presure is on the top part of the aquarium.
KodRaiN - 8 years ago
figure the forces exactly the same as if it were upright and containing the water, except they are inward, not outward.
