Yeah. My only two real problems with the TT (let's shorten it to that). is the fact that it takes away from the fish, and that kids aren't watched 24/7. But I do agree that there are worse tanks out there, like the Lava Lamp. I went to buy Piccolo some new things for her cage today, and there were tanks for bettas smaller than half a gallon. Plus there was a dead fish at petco.

Sometimes i feel that all fish and animals should be let free. The problem is we humans have domesticated them for so many years that they may not know how to survive without us. I see some dead fish at all the stores. I also see people buying gold fish for their predator tanks- makes me upset.

Yeah. I remember when I was really little, our grandparents would always take us to carnivals, and we would win goldfish in a little plastic bag with an inch of water. No heater, no filter, no nothing, just put some gravel, tap water, and flakes in the bowl and dropped them in. Never saw them twice, I think they either flushed them or put them in their big tank. Hopefully the big tank.

This site is the biggest troll bait ever... We get so worked up over every little thing. If I didn't love the people on here as much as I do I would SO do it. xD

Sally, I will always love you. You were my babygirl and the gateway to my bettabug. Thank you.

I would imagine a fish would heat up very quickly with thick fabric wrapped around it's 'tank' like that. I don't see where you could open the bowl or clean it, what with the hassle of the stuffed toy wrapped around.

And even if it was healthy for fish, I wouldn't get it. It just seems plain creepy, having a toy with fish swimming in it's stomach.

This. Not to mention that the idea of a young child playing with a toy that contains a living animal in its stomach is even creepier.

As some of you might be able to see, I removed a few posts from this thread that were not very kind toward iluvfish. Please be respectful toward each other and above all, please don't call others a troll just because they are disagreeing with you. I apologize, iluvfish.
