Beautiful & Relaxing

Watch what fish do when no one is around! UNtanked is special due to it being created underwater without a human camera operator or any humans in the area! Our divers obtain permits from NOAA to setup a special underwater "stage" and then leave the area to allow the fish and marine life to interact naturally.

"Incredible!" 

"It reduces stress for both our patients and our Doctors, which actually was proven with lower blood pressure's. It is so calming watching underwater creatures behave in their natural habitat, without external influences. It is also, a fun search for hidding creatures and naming the different species. We have both the Hawaii reef as well as the Florida keys reef series. It is interesting how they each document the health of the reefs at a certain point in time. We have had them for 6 years and never tire of watching."

FAQ

FAQ

  • How did UNtanked start?
    UNtanked started as a group effort to lessen the demand of traditional saltwater aquariums. By doing this, we hope to lower the stress that is placed on the coral reef caused from fish collection required to supply traditional aquariums. We have seen firsthand the dramatic decline of areas where the tropical fish are being captured both legally and illegally. UNtanked is the best way to observe the tropical fish in their natural environment without ANY human presence. UNtanked is a unique project that is sure to add beauty and calming to any environment it is placed in.
  • How does the aquarium work?
    The UNtanked aquarium is truly plug and play, everything is included. Within 1 minute you can convert any flat screen tv with an HDMI input into a unique stunning virtual saltwater aquarium. All you have to do is plug 1 included HDMI cable into the tv, and plug the UNtanked power supply into an outlet, that’s it! The UNtanked aquarium is fully automatic, it will auto start and run continuously all day and night 24/7 completely unattended. Perfect for any environment.
  • How does UNtanked look in person?
    UNtanked is in such a high resolution that it is very common for people to tap the glass on the TV to “touch” the fish! It truly is an aquarium replacement! UNtanked is living art that you will not find anywhere else.
  • How long does it take to make an UNtanked volume?
    It takes a team of scuba divers over 200 hours underwater to make 1 UNtanked aquarium tank. This translates to approximately 2 entire years to create just one UNtanked aquarium tank. 90% of the trips to the reef and spending an entire day out there do not make the cut. We have to have the perfect conditions and timing for tropical fish, corals, natural sunlight, visibility, etc.
  • Is UNtanked suitable to display continuously in a commercial environment?
    Yes! That is exactly what UNtanked was designed for! UNtanked is shot on 4K Ultra High Definition equipment in custom underwater housings, this quality is 4 times higher than Blu-Ray. And without any moving parts to breakdown, the UNtanked aquarium can run 24/7 without maintenance. The UNtanked system takes up almost no space, it is less than 4 inches wide and 1/2 inch thick. It fits discretely behind any flat screen and uses almost no power. UNtanked has been on display at famous locations such as the Smithsonian Institute in Washington D.C. NOAA main building on Pearl Harbor, Hawaii and more!
  • What are the benefits of UNtanked versus a traditional aquarium?
    There are numerous benefits of owning and displaying an UNtanked aquarium versus a traditional aquarium. Below are just a few. Much Lower Cost: UNtanked aquariums cost much, much less! No cleaning, no dying fish, no food, no water changes, no maintenance at all, ever!! Even a small 90-gallon saltwater aquarium can cost many thousands of dollars to build and hundreds of dollars a month to maintain. In order to give you the best quality UNtanked experience, we have to make literally hundreds of scuba dives, at varying times of day and at many different locations, to find just the right combination of fish variety and species as well as natural coral. Environmental Benefits: No fish or corals were removed or harmed creating UNtanked, versus the tremendous damage and stress tropical fish collecting causes every day. Here are just a few articles: UNtanked is the BEST way to enjoy the beautiful fish and corals while leaving the environment intact for future generations of fish to thrive.
