    What do you do when you have copious amounts of money? You get crazy with aquarium installations. One wealthy citizen in Turkey decided to create a fence of fish to separate his castle from the common folk. The fence measures in at 164-feet-long but looks to only be maybe 12-18 in. wide and contains hundreds of fish swimming by.

    We’ve seen crazy installations, including an aquarium backstop at the newish Miami Marlins stadium, but this may be the first time we’ve seen an aqua-fence like this.

    While interesting, this may not be too practical in the long term. Besides graffiti, we have to imagine this could be prone to failure if an object (like a car) hurled at the aquarium.
