Eco Systems by Design show tank at Tache Nursing Home


I had to write a post about this tank. Its setup at Tache Nursing home in Winnipeg on the main floor. Wonderful tank filled with some real giants! This tank was like a magnet attracting the young, old, visitors and staff alike. The tank features a fully sustainable ecosystem and custom designed glass and hood.

I give the designer credit for the tank’s ability to diffuse the tensions that come with visiting a sick one at the health care facility. I watched at least a dozen wheel chairs being pushed or escorted by adventurous children, side-tracked by this beautiful display.

Here’s a link to their website where you can read all about their setups.

Here’s a short video I took. Long list of fascinating fish and reptiles in there.
