Wall Mounted Fish Tanks

Advantages and disadvantages to a Wall Mounted Fish Tank. Installation. Accessories.

Have you seen a wall mounted fish tank advertisement and want to know more about them? How do they work? A Wall Mounted Fish Tank is a fish tank that is mounted onto the wall. They are also known as portrait aquariums or wall aquariums. The tank is either actually hung on the wall using studs to help support the weight. Wall Mounted fish tanks vary in size but typically they are 4 to 6 inches thick, 16 to 18 inches high and 18 inches long. You can find larger models that stretch to 4 or even 7 feet long.

Advantages to a Wall Mounted Fish Tank

The advantages to having a wall mounted fish tank include:

  • A wall mounted fish tank is perfect for when you really don't have a lot of floor space for a fish tank.
  • For an unusual design feature, you can install a wall mounted tank into a wall between two rooms.
  • Wall mounted fish tanks make it easy to see and enjoy your fish as they are mounted at eye level.
  • The wall mounted fish tank's compact design often includes filter and light that fits tank.
  • Wall mounted fish tanks are great for places where you have a lot of foot traffic and wouldn't normally risk having an aquarium that could get knocked over. Wall mounted fish tanks are great for banks, doctors' offices, and other lobbies.

Disadvantage to a Wall Mounted Fish Tank

The disadvantages to having a wall mounted fish tank include:

  • A wall mounted fish tank limits water to air exchange because of the reduced surface area of the "tank."
  • A wall mounted fish tank requires strong wall support with studs (or concrete) to hold up the tank. A small wall aquarium can weight 75 to 100 pounds when full. A large wall aquarium can weigh close to 300 pounds when full of water.
  • Wall mounted fish tanks are more expensive than regular fish tanks (the same way a laptop costs more than a regular computer).
  • A wall mounted fish tank will limit your fish selection as you can only get small fish that would be happy in such a "skinny" tank. Fish size is limited to the width of the tank (usually 4 inches)
