Great letters, everyone! Maybe they will stop selling this soon. Ugh, what an awful product!!!

Has anyone tried calling their hotline yet? You will probably just get an answering machine, but maybe you can complain there?

Has anyone read their "about betta fish" link? Forget puddles, these morons believe that wild bettas live in footprints left by rice patty workers.

Does ANY company research before making a product anymore?!

Comments: Your product the AquaBlock is way to small for just about any fish much less a Betta. Perhaps your company failed to research the Betta, its need for heated water, water changes, and a filter. Does the AquaBlock even have a lid? Bettas are known to jump. I'm sure the last thing you want your "stressed stockbrokers" wanting is their fish flopping around on their desk. The need for heated water is they are a tropical fish. Bettas are know to become lethargic in cold water. That can and will most likely lead to death of the fish. The size being 8"H x 8"L x 3"W means this "tank" holds less then 1 gallon of water. Many aquarium hobbiest would tell you a minimum stock size is 1" of fish per gallon of water. Betta fish are known to be on average 1.5" and are known to be up to 4". Also, Bettas can get sick easy and not having any filter would be daily water changes, and you would need conditioner for the water each time this was done. Even with a filtered aquarium you still need weekly water changes. Another thing, your sealed gravel and sand, prevents beneficial bacteria from growing, these bacteria help break down the ammonia and other important duties, if you know anything of the nitrogen cycle in a aquarium. This means your AquaBlock is basically useless, as it give nothing a Betta needs other then a container of water. The only thing I could think of to use the AquaBlock for is a temporary container for my fish as I clean his larger tank, then again I could do this with a much cheaper container.

Here's mine:
Your "tank" is much too small. Bettas need at least 2.5 gallons, and they do need a filter and heater. Please do the right thing and take this off the market.

But seriously, why do these people need to know your adress?

A pet should not be carefree. That's the point of a pet.
