What is your wildest reef aquarium invention idea?


New member
I was just thinking the other day, "how cool and fun would it be, to have a robotic emerald crab that I could remotely guide to every hair-algae plagued area in my tank".

I know it's a crazy idea, but in the last 5-10 years, there have been amazing advances in all areas of tech, that would have previously seemed impossible and all were driven by an original idea.

Let's hear all of those futuristic, practical or not, aquarium invention ideas!

Robo-crab, eh? Would you then have it walk over & poop into the overflow? :lol:
Maybe a robo-goby to pair with & feed my pistol so I don't have to stick my arm in there with long tweezers then wait for it to decide to take several pieces of food every day.

Acrylic imbued with a chemical that prevents coralline algae growth.:uzi:

Would you settle for Clear Aluminum?
