Behold, the ultimate in toileting chic!!

"THE AQUARIASS!"

[Linked Image]

According to Dave Barry's Holiday Shopping Guide, this little baby can be yours for the low, low price of $1200.

Pretty cool for the guest half-bath off the kitchen, eh?

Yes, it's real.

Why Didn\'t I Think Of That?

Cindy, I'm gonna show my partner that. I just know that he'll say he can make one. :rolleyes:
I'd fear for the safety of the fish though........

Ycul, Dave Barry describes it thusly:

"This is a working aquarium that also functions as a toilet tank. While you're 'doing your business,' you can enjoy actual, living fish darting around in a playful manner, until of course you flush, at which point they are sucked, screaming tiny underwater Nemo screams, down the Hole of Death.

No, seriously, the fish are not flushed down, as far as we can tell. They continue to swim around in there, in plain view, watching as you use the commode. Even when your back is turned you can feel their eyes on you . . . watching . . . watching. Try not to think about it."

1.6 gpf. I have to give them credit for this one.

Years ago I had a girlfriend who had a fish motif in the bathroom. Everything had to do with fish, needless to say she would have wanted one of these. Heck, she is probably still into fish and her current "prisoner of war" probably already has one installed.

I can't stop laughing, thanks for the thread.

Which is less than your water bill was (prior to you Once In a Lifetime Exemption).

Cindy - When I saw the title of the thread I was going to respond, "Probably because you have good taste, like me." Then I saw the item. Take it back! laugh

Actually, I've been going to experiment with putting gold fish in my horse troughs. SUpposed to keep the algae down.

Goldfish work great in horse troughs. The water stays nice and clear.

Jodi - Have you actually used goldfish? Do you leave them in in the winter? I have tank heaters in my troughs, but I would have to be careful not to let the water get too low.

I can vouch for that. Plus the goldfish get really really big. Way cool.

(Ice formation was never a problem, but lack of water was. Use an automatic filling device if you put fish in your stock tanks! smile )

Yes, they can stay in the troughs in the winter. I just read something that said they could actually freeze, (or close to it) and stay alive. But a tank heater would keep that from happening anyway. Just get the little feeder fish - they're cheap - You might start out with two, since you may lose one. The barn I boarded at had goldfish in a couple of their tanks. The water was always much cleaner looking compared to the tanks without fish.

I have a small pond next to my front door. We have several goldfish - they are totally cool.

Cindysphinx,

That's not the toilet they are facing the wall on,...it's the bidet!!!

Guys get the two mixed up,...until they discover the "Grand Difference" that the French have known about for years!!!!!!

After that,... who cares about the fish!!!

Funny Thread!

Dumb question from a city kid: Do the horses every accidently swallow a goldfish? Are the goldfish smart and/or quick enough to avoid horse muzzles?

Jodi, your post reminded me of when I was a kid. I had a series of those little goldfish you can buy at any pet store and put into a round bowl with the ubiquitous blue gravel and ceramic castle smile .

Of course many's the time when they floated sideways. I discovered that if I rescued them early enough and put them into a bowl of ice water, they would revive and be just fine.

Go figure. confused

I second that question.
And, don't the goldfish poop in the water?
How can that make it cleaner?
We need some science here.

I guess they act as filters and eat all the horse mouth gunk. Meanwhile the little fish poop is so tiny next to the huge tank that no one realises it's there - that or else the sides aren't made of clear glass, so it's just a con.
No, seriously, why don't they get eaten?

Horses won't eat fish without tarter sauce.

Nope, the horses don't swallow the fish. And, kenny - the water gets drunk and replenished. The amount of waste the fish create in a big stock tank is minimal, so it's not a problem.

Heck, it's not a problem in my little pond, either. And nobody drinks out of that except the neighbors cat.

Also, the goldfish eat mosquito larva. And with horses being susceptable to West Nile Virus, that's a good thing.

I bet those little fish need valium! I would!

So here I am, swimming around minding my business, eating mosquito larvae, and then, all of a sudden, a big hairy horse mouth plunges into my world and tries to eat me! eek

Jodi,
This reminds me of a funny horse story, and quite true, too. I remember someone (the city-slicker type like Kenny) wink asking me what I was going to do when I got home. I said I've got a mare to breed. Then "she" said, well, where are you going to do this? I said that I've got a sandy corral that I use. Then she asked how I knew that the mare was ready to breed. I said that she shows interest in the stallion, urinates, raises her tail and winks a lot. And then she said, in all seriousness, you means she actually winks and flutters her eyes? laugh laugh laugh laugh laugh


Sincerely,
Eldon
