It's a lamp and it's a fish tank (sort of). With extraordinary kitsch value, this lamp looks great in a dorm room at a school where students surf, and it's likewise perfect in any glamorous, big-city hipster's apartment. Cute fake fish swim in the totally tubular, water-filled, plastic... well, tube w/changing colors. But the results transcend the lava lamp. Approx. 4 feet tall. Mine is similiar to the one in the photo only mine is gray/brushed silver instead of blue. Paid $59.99; will sell for $15.00.
