In Turkey, a wealthy businessman has built an amazing fence for his luxury villa.
There's something else going on in Turkey besides mass protests against the regime.
A successful businessman named Mehmet Ali Gökçeoğlu has built an amazing fence for his luxury villa in Çeşme, Izmir.
In place of a metal fence at the front of his property, he built a 50-meter-long aquarium filled with hundreds of fish and octopuses (yes, it's octopuses) from the Aegean Sea.
Gökçeoğlu’s property is now a major tourist destination, attracting up to a thousand visitors a day, according to its owner.
Here's the fence in action:

Oddity Central reports:
Building the transparent structure was actually the easy part of the project. The hard part was linking the aqua-fence to the Aegean through a 400-meter-long buried pipeline, so the water could be changed continuously to keep the aquarium looking clean and its inhabitants happy. Gökçeoğlu hired a team of private divers to perform the task, and ended up paying approximately 40,000 Turkish Lira ($21,000) to fulfill his dream. The businessman says just seeing people line up outside his house staring at his creation makes it all worth it.
