Introduction: Robotic Fish Tank
Have you always wanted a fish tank? Did you never buy one because you didn't want to take responsibility over a living creature? Did you never buy one because you don't have enough time for this hobby? 3 times yes? Then go for a robotic fish tank!
Ok, you got to feed them with batteries. However, the newest generation of robotic fish will stop automatically after a few minutes to increase battery life. They will start to swim again when you knock on the tank.
Step 1: Get a Fish Tank
- Don't go too small
- You don't need a heater
- It looks cooler when a light is integrated
Step 2: Get Robotic Fish
There are 2 generations of robotic fish from 2 different manufacturers easily available in stores. The second generation has flashing LED lights and will stop automatically after a few minutes to increase battery life. They will start to swim again after knocking on the tank.

Step 3: Get a Filtration Pump
You should at least install a filtration pump to keep the water clean. I've used a cheap 2.5W Chinese submersible filtration pump by Aleas. It would probably be even cooler to use a streaming pump too. The final touch can be added by using stones, wood and other aquarium decoration.
Step 4: Drop the Fish in the Tank...
