Front-load Washer Aquarium Is Home to the World’s Cleanest Fish


Written by Conner Flynn | January 14, 2015

Redittor lava_lump wanted something different for a home aquarium, so with the help of a friend, he turned this front load washer into an awesome fish haven. I just hope he doesn’t start the spin cycle by accident.

As he says, the project went “swimmingly”. Not counting the aquarium equipment, the hardware costs were for high tension cabling and silicone and LED lighting, which cost him $125. The cost for the aquarium equipment was $220. Not bad at all, and the broken washing machine was only worth about 50 bucks. And since you can’t just have regular old fish in a cool aquarium like this, he bought some “glo fish” to go with that LED lighting.


It looks like friggin’ Avatar in there. If you happen to be near Henrietta, New York, you can check the aquarium out in person at Rochester Appliance.
