This YouTuber Has Created A Custom Fish Tank So He Can Take His Goldfish on Walks

The new fish tank has made it possible for fish to be mobile and go with you where you wish.

It all started with a series of posts on the Facebook Open Society group from members who claimed to have spotted a man walking his pet fish around Taipei in a fish tank on wheels. It was found out that he was a popular Taiwanese DIY YouTuber called Huang Xiaojie, aka ‘Jerry’.

Huang’s video does not have English subtitles that could explain the work that made the project possible. The YouTuber made it possible by welding a metal chassis as support for a sealed acrylic tube, putting it on wheels, and adding a handle for pushing.

The acrylic tube is the actual fish tank, and it comes with a battery-powered filtration system, an air pump for oxygen, along with a lighting system if you really want to exhibit your fish at nighttime.

Huang Xiaojie took his three goldfish for a long walk, and they were kept safe and declared a success. His fans agreed, admiring his resourcefulness, and praying that such a fish tank comes to market one day, so they can walk their own fish. Some even offered suggestions, like a shock dampening system, to make the fish more comfortable.

Previously, there was another ingenious invention, the “katsugyo bag” by Japanese company Ma Corporation, which shared Jerry’s tubular design, only it’s meant to be held in the hand.
