An infinite collection of Macquariums

A few months back, when I inherited an old Indigo iMac G3, I asked you guys for ideas what to do with it… and have still yet to follow through on any of them. One thing I was resistant to the idea of doing was the timeless Macquarium mod: I suspected it would actually be a lot harder to accomplish than merely filling the thing full of water, as well as being prone to catastrophic failure and a bit cliched to boot.

Still, if you’re interested in turning practically any old Mac into a goldfish bowl, this instruction gallery over at the Apple Collection has you covered, from the Mac Classic right down to the Newton. Interestingly, this has finally got me thinking: I wonder how my budgerigar companion Humbert J. Humbird would like living in an iMac cage?

    My MacQuarium, in frequent use since April 1998, has never sprung a leak. Built from a Mac Plus to Andy Ihnatko’s original specifications and held together with nothing but aquarium sealant, I couldn’t be happier with it.

    Second Best Budgie Name EVAR (First still goes to Dorothy Parker, who said she named her parakeet “Onan” because he spilled his seed upon the ground).
