    That is right cool. I had no idea that goldfish are "long distance swimmers," though -- are they sure on that? Don't see too many of those little guys in the ocean or anything. ;)

    It would be really neat to design things like this on a full-time basis.

    I wonder if you could rig up a system that would allow you to connect a couple of Scalextric controllers to it, you know electrifying the water behind the fish a little to make them swim that bit faster??

    Us humane goldfish racers prefer to race our fish in a water+powerbar liquid suspension. ;)

    Who's going to get these and paint numbers on their fish :D

    Very cool idea and much better than the fish bowl....

    I guess they'll just have to start selectively breeding goldfish until they grow their own numbers :D

    So sad to think that virtually every goldfish alive is in a round bowl and therefore "unhappy". :rolleyes:

    Still, this is an excellent design - I wonder if the fish tend to swim a lot or just hide behind the plants.

    How does it know ists "hiding." There is always a way to see the fish, even if it is "behind" the plant.

    Why not just put a plant in the middle of a square aquarium? No magnification, and the goldfish swims in circles for hours and hours.....and dies. :p

    they would do if you held a Le Mans 24 hour type race with my Scalextric suggestion. ;)

    Does anyone make aluminum wings and tiny little "Type R" stickers for my Goldfish? My goldfish is a boy racer. He already has the Nitrous upgrade.

    add a stopwatch, a webcam and connect it to your mac and you'll get an ultimate racing platform :D Just imagine this: Your fish can race via Internet with your friends fish *gg* [​IMG]
