The gumball machine is pretty cool, if it were 30x bigger.

Teddy Tank!? Seriously? Not only is the tank incredibly small...what is the point? I really hope a child can't take it and carry it around. That poor fish!

I bought one of these just for a small hospital tank, but have never used it. After reading several books and getting advice on this site, I would NEVER use this as a regualr tank for a betta or even a goldfish.

A real eye opener...
I met a Fish Expert at PetSmart. She had Bettas of her own in 1gal bowls. She gave me some bad info starting out. You know the drill. Rice patties. Tiny puddles. They don't like large spaces and will freak out in big tanks. Fed um x2-4 week. And so on. When I went back and started correcting her on all the info that she gave me that wasn't right, she smiled and listened. She was only half listening until I told her I was looking for a male apple snail which perked her attention up as she believed that they were all unisex. It's what she had always told me in fact. So when she got off work and went home, she researched. And she discovered I was right. So then, she started researching everything! The next time I saw her, she pulled me to the side and told me "You were right about everything!" She then tolld me that the stuff she told me before was what she was "trained" to say and she never knew better! Also, they told her to never go to a forum because we give crazy/bad info

Ah trained brainless response; gatta love it. It is amazing how many people will utter the words a company wants you to say and never looking to see what the real deal is.

She told me how she was "trained" in fishcare and after all the training she went through, she never thought to research it herself. She felt bad about believing what they told her all this time. She just assumed that we were like those over zealous dog owners (you guys know what I'm talking about) and never realized we were talking about basic needs! She also said that most of them who DO go into a forum don't come back because things they learned in training are attacked, forum members get rude, or the info conflicts so badly with everything they know, they can't see how it could be right. But at least she's getting it now because of one big fact that they taught her wrong and I told her correctly which sparked her search for good info.

I am currently using a 1/2 gallon tank, until I can afford a 2 gallon, but it isn't this bad... Its wider, with much more room to swim... Have you seen the cube containers? They're even smaller. So sad.

Is there anything else you can put him in with a larger volume? A glass bowl (washed with vinager and rinsed well of corse) from your kitchen perhaps?
