A Tic-Tac Container is larger than this. But like Mr.V said better just ignore it as there really isn't much anyone can do. Anyone smart will know that this isn't suitable conditions for anything and will look the other way for something else to put their fish in.

I've seen that tank before and it's only for show, not a real tank. The man who made it specializes in making miniature objects. Thus, this was only a tank made to break the world record. He stated in a video that it is not a permanent home. So for all of you who are freaking out don't worry....

^+1 -- it's art. No fish were harmed in the making.

Though I gotta love the stance 'if you're upset by cruelty, then don't look' expressed a couple of times in this thread.

People willing to NOT look away are what have put an end to many of the heinous and horribly casual acts of animal cruelty which were once just a part of daily reality.

I'm honestly really surprised to find that sentiment expressed openly on this forum.

I would hate to sound like I don't care for the mistreatment of fish as I always find it sickening that most fish are killed to misinformation and poor qualities of life. But, something like this (a tank made that size) wouldn't be considered for anything other than a place to store small objects. Anyone who would use this a permanent home either is completely dumb or has no sense in what proper tank size means to a fish.

Excuse me for acting as though I didn't care for the matter.

To be quite honest, when I saw this (The video of it) some months back, I thought it was cute! The man put the tank together, used a tiny little net and a little bubbler and everything for it. The fry are so tiny they didn't seem stressed at all but the space, swimming around happily. And the creator said it was temporary. It didn't seem cruel at all and didn't look like he was mistreating the fish.

I agree, there are some things that shouldn't be done "For art" but this one doesn't strike me as cruel at all.
