Maybe it's a good tank for a snail or something like that. Or moss balls.

It's just too small for a fish, I think. After awhile it will get gross and maybe even get algae.

It will be incredibly inconvenient to dig out all of the decorations and the fish itself when you need to scrub the container clean.

Frequent water changes and water conditioning will become a bother.

Anyone else notice the reddish bluish Betta in the video seems to have a tail biting/fin rot issue? Seems stressful to poor water on top of them daily.

They did it as a Kickstarter, which means that to get the funding to start up production they got a whole bunch of people to buy them in advance. So, it's a viable product. (I think it's too expensive, but that doesn't mean people won't buy it.) I just wish it was bigger, I love the idea.

I think the whole point is that you can do a partial water change almost instantly with it.

what about this: http://www.walmart.com/ip/Creative-B...-Core/21130892

saw it in the store today...it's 3 gallons and has a spout at the bottom to drain water through, making water changes quick and easy. the only problem i see is that it'd be pretty impossible to put a filter in it, so it'd have to be live planted for natural filtration. i'm seriously considering this, the price is great as well.

lol 1serious flaw,when you turn the spout on any fish or shrimp or anything even rocks is goin to get sucked into the spout and either clog it up or come out,wouldnt work,thats why the spout is on top of the first linked tank coz a bottom one wont work

you could block it with a piece of fishnet, and build up the gravel around the spout so that wouldn't be a problem. i had already worked that out in my head, just forgot to mention that as a necessary step to making the dispenser into a fish tank.
