Cool Idea: Duplex Digs For Birds and Fish

Birds and fish have really drawn the short end of the stick when it comes to dwelling design. So I was delighted to come across Duplex, a bird cage topped with a fish tank. The design of the aquarium was molded convexly to create a space where the bird flies and the fish swims at the same height, creating a visual encounter between the two. Beyond that, this air and waterworld fusion is absolutely stunning with its wooden cage bars and tall, bulbous shape. I never liked cleaning the algae out of fish bowls, but for the Duplex, I'd do anything.

It's cute but it's made out of wood, wouldnt the bird chew through it?

...wouldn't that be top heavy? I'd be afraid of it falling over. That little base it has would have to be filled with lead to make up for the heavy water on top.

The answer to the question 'a bird may love a fish, but where would they live?'. :)

i really like this. it's beautiful! but i read that it is best to get bird cages that extend horizontally rather than vertically, so the birds can fly easily from perch to perch. they can't really fly when it goes straight up. so unfortunately it's not 100% functional. too bad :(

That's a pretty big tank. It just needs a bit more water. Anyway, I love this. I think it's a great piece. Although, I question how often the bird would actually fly into the area up by the fish tank. Regardless, I still love it!

That fish tank needs to be bigger. Poor thing in there must be cramped. It must be a b*tch to clean, though.
