  • The Mechanical Aquarium from Ugears is an ingenious saltwater fishbowl, with two pet tropical fish chasing each other around a forest of macro-algae fronds, inside of which hides another small inhabitant of the marine environment—a seahorse!
  • Not only is this DIY aquarium model kit, with its original theme and design, a fine addition to the Ugears catalogue, but it also features a unique mechanical action
  • The fish and algae rotate simultaneously and in parallel, at different speeds and in different directions, simulating the smooth, undulating rhythms of underwater plant and animal life, The elegant fish look like they are really swimming as they move their heads and tails side-to-side
  • The Mechanical Aquarium model is unique in that while many Ugears models are propelled by rubber band motors, the Aquarium is driven by a spring, for longer action and greater longevity
  • At Ugears we pride ourselves on innovating, and on listening to our loyal customers, many of whom have been asking for models with spring-loaded mechanisms
  • We are proud to bring you this spring-action aquarium—a first in our growing catalogue of Ugears models!
  • To set the model in motion, wind the knob under the aquarium with about 25 half-turns, flip the switch from "STOP" to "SWIM" mode, then watch as your Mechanical Aquarium comes to life!
  • The mechanism contains an internal pendulum to regulate and smooth the movement. We have designed this model to be the very definition of operational simplicity for users: one switch, two modes: on and off
  • You can stop the model at any time, or just let it go and enjoy the movements of the automaton fish and fronds for about 40 seconds
  • With the Mechanical Aquarium, you can dip into the fascinating underwater world with an attractive, whimsical wooden model you can build yourself, then proudly display
  • Once the model is assembled your family and friends will have hours of enjoyment watching the automaton fish swimming with lifelike action around their wooden bowl, while getting occasional peeks through the fronds at the secretive seahorse, And you'll never need to test or change the water!
  • As you build the wooden aquarium, you will learn about the action and interplay of drive gears and driven gears in gear sets, the function of pendulums, and about spring-action mechanisms
  • You will experience the satisfaction of building something beautiful with your own hands, without need of glue or special tools
  • Looking for a unique gift idea for a friend or family member? Maybe someone you know is a saltwater aquarium enthusiast, a model building hobbyist, or simply someone who enjoys working with their hands. Maybe you're the hobbyist looking to share with friends and family the joy you find in saltwater aquariums, snorkelling or diving, or building 3D puzzles. Perhaps there are some children in your life who would be delighted to wind up this model and set the fish spinning around their bowl again and again
  • The Mechanical Aquarium is certain to charm, and makes a thoughtful gift for birthdays, holidays, any occasion or no occasion
  • Give it as a DIY kit wrapped up in its handsome box, or build it yourself and present the finished Mechanical Aquarium as a personal gift in which you have invested your time and care. Either way, the wooden Mechanical Aquarium will be a cherished gift, and a delightful addition to any home or office
