In a Flesh Aquarium is the second full-length album by Canadian avant-garde extreme metal band uneXpect. It was released on August 22, 2006 through The End Records. This is the first album to include Landryx as the new drummer and the last album to feature Le Bateleur on violin.

SyriaK wrote all lyrics, except "Megalomaniac Trees" by Artagoth and "The Shiver" by ChaotH. The lyrics to "Another Dissonant Chord" were translated to Hungarian by the Hegyesy family (relatives of Leïlindel); the booklet also includes the English translation.

The album was re-released in Europe in 2007 by Ascendance Records and distributed worldwide by Plastic Head, with a different album cover and also including the 2003 release wE, Invaders as a bonus CD, which includes a bonus track entitled "Puppet's Strange Vision" composed by ExoD.
