Ever Seen An Upside Down Koi Pond? Check This Out, It's Amazing!

You’ve all seen what a koi pond looks like. A majestic little alcove in a garden filled with water and beautiful koi fish. They're beautiful and calming to look at. But have you ever seen an upside down koi pond?

YouTuber TCHelmut is the mastermind behind the upside down koi pond which includes a tower for the aquatic beauties. According to Wimp, the German koi enthusiast was looking for a way to spruce up the tiny koi pond he had in his yard.

So he decided to combine his indoor aquarium with his outdoor one. The upside down koi pond, or anti-gravity aquarium, is made with a 1-centimeter thick glass and filled with water from a hose slowly at the bottom so the airs gets sucked up and causes the water to rise. About 20 fish swim to the top of the tower each day and some hang out there for hours at a time. Though it looks crowded, it’s not. It just looks that way because the glass makes them appear larger.

Want to build your own?

Find a spot with 100 square feet of surface area or more. The deepest part of your pod should be at least six feet tall with the shallow areas 2-3 feet deep. Use two pumps to keep water circulating.
