Have you ever seen a fish tank hanging on the wall?!
I had never even heard of a wall aquarium.
Yesterday I saw my first one, right in the shopping center part of Hadassah Medical Center.
Enlarge the photo once or twice and see the reflected shops and tables of merchandise in the hallway.
I should have taken a picture from the side.
You would see that the narrow waterway for those poor fish must be less than two inches from front to back.
The poor things just swim back and forth, back and forth. What a life.
Today I consulted a friend who is a professional aquarium builder, and he said it is OK as long as the fish are small ones and the quality of their water is good.
He said Hadassah has installed many of these in the hospital wards.
I guess watching fish is calming, but for me to see these fish confined in such a narrow place only angered me.
I hope fish don't feel claustrophobia. I wonder if they can see reflections?
