    This is short video from the Steinhart Aquarium at the California Academy of Sciences in San Francisco detailing how biologists keep captive octopuses stimulated so they don't get depressed. Apparently they give them puzzles and toys and BODY MASSAGES. I wish I got body massa... / Continue →

    This is a video/Sony commercial of Rambo the octopus taking pictures of visitors to the Sea Land Aquarium in Auckland, New Zealand. Apparently Rambo learned how to push the shutter button after just three attempts. For reference, my little sister still doesn't know how to tak... / Continue →

    Because who hasn't dreamed of their kitchen smelling fishy all the time, this is the kitchen counter (complete with sink and stovetop) with a saltwater aquarium beneath, designed and built by Dutch designer Robert Kolenik. The entire counter raises with the push of a button fo... / Continue →

    Aquarists P. Zelda Montoya and Barrett L. Christie at the Dallas Zoo and Children's Aquarium successfully blended creamy peanut butter with salt water and fed it to moon jellyfish. Why? I'm not sure, presumably just so they could say they raised peanut butter jellyfish. WORT... / Continue →

    This is the beautifully crafted Bioshock themed aquarium built by Tim Baker Creations as part of the Super-Fan Build web series. They did an amazing job (the Big Daddy's mask has lights inside and his drill even rotates), I just wish it had even MORE decorations. Like, maybe ... / Continue →

    First the live Twitch stream of a beta fish playing Pokemon, and now two fish in the same tank battling each other in Street Fighter II. There's definitely a lot more action happening on this channel. You think the fish actually know what they're doing? When reached for some... / Continue →

    I guess you could say he's BETA testing the game (come kick me in the nuts). This is the live Twitch stream of Grayson Hopper the beta fish playing Pokemon Red/Blue by swimming around his fishbowl. He seemed to be sleeping most of the time I was watching though. Well, at lea... / Continue →

    This is Kelsey Kronmiller and her boyfriend's custom Super Mario Bros level themed fish tank (previously: this one that she got the idea from) The castles are made out of LEGO bricks. If I were a fish I would love to live in there. I am not a fish though, I am a gecko. I hav... / Continue →

    This is a video of a goldfish in a little aquarium on wheels who can steer the thing by swimming in different directions (which is captured by a webcam). It's basically exactly like Finding Nemo, provided you've never seen the movie and thought it was about a fish who owned a ... / Continue →

    Meet Lola, a 4-pound, 10-year old lobster caught off the coast of Massachusetts with a regular claw on one side, and five freaky little nonfunctional claws on the other. MUTANT! *calling Professor X* Seriously bro, you have to let us kill and eat this one. "This claw deform... / Continue →

    This is the baby nautilus that was successfully hatched at the Birch Aquarium at Scripps in San Diego, California. Apparently captive bred nautilus babies are rare because nautiluses are weird and aren't always willing to bone with humans watching. Me? I would perform great ... / Continue →

    In 1994 employees at an unheard of company called Netscape pointed a live camera at a fishtank and streamed the shots to the web. And now, 19 years later, the feed is still live. Netscape Navigator? DEAD IN THE WATER. I remember the first time I came home from middle school... / Continue →

    This is a video of a goldfish that has trouble maintaining its buoyancy. So what did it's owner make? "A fishstick?" Good heavens no! They made it a little life preserver so it can still swim around instead of laying at the bottom of the tank all day being sad. The fish ha... / Continue →

    As proof you shouldn't always go with the lowest bidding contractor, a giant shark tank holding 33-tons of water recently broke inside a Chinese shopping mall, injuring 15 patrons and killing all the sharks. So, what was it -- shoddy craftsmanship, or a shark escape gone wron... / Continue →

    Ahahahaha, I try to make out with my reflection too! Especially in those shiny office building windows where you know there's somebody on the other side. I make people's lunch breaks FANTASTIC. Because this is what the world has come to, scientists from the National Taiwan O... / Continue →

    This is a bed with a custom $11,500 650-gallon acrylic aquarium "headboard" spanning above it. That way instead of counting sheep when you go to bed you can count fish. Don't like fish? Get turtles. Don't like turtles? There's something wrong with you. There's currently a... / Continue →

    This is a couple pictures and a video of the 55-gallon aquarium Redditor jennyleighb's roommate decorated with a custom LEGO Super Mario Bros. scene he built. Pet fish never had it so good! Still, you know what it needs? "A skeleton pirate drinking out of a jug of rum?" Exa... / Continue →

    Because WHY THE F*** SHOULD CATS be the only ones having a good time chasing laser pointers, this puffer fish decided to give it a go. And he likes it! Just kidding, he thinks it's food and winds up with nothing but a mouthful of sand every time. Speaking of which -- rememb... / Continue →

    This is a public aquarium made entirely out of ice and frozen fish in (SURPRISE!) Japan. Neat idea, but I can see the exact same thing walking through the frozen food isle of the Korean market down the street. All kinda shit be starin' at ya! The Kori no Suizokukan, or the "... / Continue →
