    who would put fish in a narrow, vertical, constantly-lighted tube??? besides that, they look nice, there isn’t one outlet in my house that’s in a suitable place for a light or a vase.

    The lamps look very nice but can they really be considered eco-friendly if they are used for decorative, rather than ‘necessary’ lighting? Also, they would definitely not be eco-friendly to fill them with fish – please do not even suggest doing that as you would contributing to an inhumane practice.

    Nice idea but at $295.USD I think it’s a bit too expensive………

    how is this energy efficient lighting? what exactly are these lights giving light to? does it help me read a book? cut veggies in the kitchen? see my way around the living room?? this is an example of a decorative accent light, and yes they are very nice, but the fact remains that accent lighting is not efficient.

    This light is so cool! Very neat idea…

    These are gorgeous, but please don’t put live fish in them. That particular mini-trend is inhumane.

    great idea. i like how light comes from the top and bottom that way if you fill the tube up you will still get light.
