I had a small co-op in the East Village of NYC back in the day. It was a 700 sq.ft. duplex with an unfortunately placed cleanout trap for the building's main drain... in my living room. I removed the wooden trap door that covered it, tiled the whole thing and filled it with water and little 10 cent feeder fish. It worked great til the whole downstairs flooded... 3 times. They fixed the flooding problem and I sold it about a decade ago.
