Exclamation AWFUL fish tank!

I am not sure if this was just a temporary thing for a picture advertising Nike or if it was really advertising something to encourage others to get one or make one like it but whether the fish were in this temporarily or not, this tank is terrible!!!! (although it is creative i must say.) Here it is:



And the fact that one goldfish would eventually outgrow even a 30 gallon sure doesn't help with the fact that there are THREE in this small thing!!!!!!!! >:(

I feel bad even having my goldie in a 5 gallon (got her before I knew their space needs). I would NEVER put even 1 in something so small!

I can imagine the advertising message for this... "It's like treading on water...but with the water INSIDE YOUR SHOES. And also there are fish. INSIDE YOUR SHOES. Nike. Just do it!. "*Cut*

WOW! Thats not something you see everyday. It's not a good idea thou, because it's too small for fish. I really hope this is just a idea and not for real.

55 gallon planted tank, starting over!!!( looking crappy, needs a major rescape)

dont fish normally grow to suit the size of the aquarium if this is true wouldnt that mean one goldfish could survive in a well filtered 10 maybe even 5 gallon tank and not outgrow it

No. It means their insides will outgrow their bodies and basically cause so much internal pressure that they die.

so they need bigger aquariums to grow in or their own bodies will end up killing itself
