Fisn 'n Flush: Aquarium Toilet

Quintana has a dream: "to put some fish in a man's toilet, so he will never have a boring trip to the pot again."

Here's the story behind the Fish 'n Flush:

The Westminster entrepreneur has invented a toilet tank that doubles as an aquarium – with a breath-catching twist: When you flush, it looks like all the water is draining out of the tank and the fish are going down.

It's an optical illusion. The fish are actually safe in an outer aquarium made of high-polished plastic. What you see draining is the toilet water in a separate tank behind the aquarium.

Watching the tank refill – and the fish merrily swimming, oblivious to any threat – you get the urge to break into applause.

Yes, with a brain on the same scale as a gnat, lets all waste our time and energy worrying about the poor old goldfish (watching a couple of herons spear fish dozens of trout fingerling's out my pond as I write this - doesn't really put my knickers in a knot over the loss or how much if any it traumatizes the fish - it's called nature).
