“A Macquarium is an aquarium made from the shell of an Apple Macintosh computer. The term was coined by computer writer Andy Ihnatko as a joke (a jibe at the outdatedness of the Macintosh 512K) but Macquaria have actually been built both by Ihnatko, himself, and by many of his fans and some are even commercially available.”

    OOh… You should never make a fish tank out of plexiglass… The small imperfections can harbor bacteria and it wil be impossible to clean.

    It’s easier to get a glass cutter to cut you whatever shape you want out of glass and make it that way. Also, since nobody looks in from the sides I usually use mirrors for mine–makes the tank brighter that way, with less lights.

    Cool aquariums!Who said that recycling isn’t cool. Based from the images above, this would prove otherwise.

    It’s great to know that computer users all over the world are becoming “smart shoppers” and “responsible shoppers” as well. I for one believe that all computer users should support green computing. Besides, we are the ones who are responsible for the ever increasing electronic trash in our world. It is only right for us to own the responsibility of the proper disposal and recycling of our computer trashes.
