Bad tank!

When I went to get Splash a new and bigger tank I seen these pathetic excuses of a so called fish bowl...this isn't even a bowl...more like a cup of water. What fish could live like this? They sell them both at Petco and Petsmart....probably at Walmart too.

Wow what a rubbish tank! How would the fish even like living in there.

I got stressed today getting Dark Rose a tank, There seems to be soo many tanks as suitable for fish as that for sale.

I've seen those all over both my Petsmart and Petco. My girlfriend first mentioned them to me a few weeks ago, geeking out over the comicbook themes.

As a a geek myself, I like the idea of the tank.....but really I think they're poorly constructed and designed. Besides the obvious fact that probably not even a few shrimp would do well in there with it being so small, they just look tacky and poorly designed.

I think it would have been cool as maybe scenes made into a background for a tank, or maybe even as....something that could be placed inside of a tank. Now that is something I would purchase.

What on earth is that? Never seen anything quite like it. How does it even hold water? Judging from the stock shot on the website, I thought it was a comic-book-themed dinner plate for children. Seriously.

I had too look at that for a while before I could even tell what it was. How could anyone possibly think of keeping a fish in there?

They are pretty horrible if you see them in person. They have superman, Batman and Barbie bowls. They hardly hold a quart. Next time I go to Pco I will try to sneak a pic.

The infamous Teddy bowls would make a better tank

Oh, yeah. I made a thread on these. People say they're 1 gallon, though. But still. :I
