Rotating aquarium

Image Number 2 for United States Patent #5704313.

A rotating aquarium for use with live fish and particularly live corals including a canopy with light fixtures, a tank having a central core, a turntable including an electric motor for rotating the tank and a base for supporting the tank. The central core includes an electrical conduit for transporting electrical wires to the light fixture in the canopy. The central core also includes a water pipe that is connected to a reservoir mounted within the base of the aquarium. The reservoir includes a pump that circulates water throughout the aquarium. The tank rotates about the central core via the turntable and the electric motor. As the tank rotates, the fish and living coral receive light at different angles and receive superior water circulation. The aquarium of this invention therefore provides an environment more like the ocean for the animals living therein.
