Gold Fish in a Deep Fryer

I had to see this one to believe it. Its basically a fish tank under a deep fryer. The video is narrated in Japanese but the science is pretty easy to follow.  This method has several advantages over conventional fryers.

  1. No fillter nessicary. The fish eat any bits of food that fall into the oil.

  2. No danger of splash-back if you spill water into the fryer, the bottom layer is already water.

  3. This fryer definitely earns points on the madness scale.

Check out the video:

The only downside I can see is maintaining the fish. Its great that they eat what would normally get caught in the grease trap, but that diet can't be great and gold fish arn't famous for their long life in any case. So how do you remove the ones that inevitably end up "belly up"?  Maybe they float up to the oil and become fried fish food for their brothers and sisters.Even if you ignore the fish canibalism, there a bunch of fish poo to wory about. Fish tanks need a good scrubbing every once in a while last time I checked. So its probably not a practical invention but oh so cool.
