So I was poking around on the internet and I came across an old tank I gave my first fish.
In short, it took his life.
1. It is WAY to small. What is it, like 0.5 gallons?
2. It's a toy, not a habitat!
3. Thre is no way to clean it. The gunk gets trapped at the bottom of the tank.
4. The periscope doesn't work.
Some of the reviews show my frustration:
This is an awful contraption. My son was devistated to lose his fish after his gran bought him this present in good faith christmas 2005. Since then I've had to learn a lot more about fishkeeping and I now know there is no way you should keep live fish in a toy like this. National Geographic should be ashamed to put their name to this.
This was bought as a present for my son and is without doubt the most cruel way to have fish. If you do want a fish tank for your children and you don't want the fish to die within a week, then go to your local pet shop and inexpensively buy a larger tank with the correct chemicals to keep your fish healthy and a pump to keep the water clean and oxygenated. This way you will prevent animal cruelty and protect your children from the inevitable dead fish the tank produces! Generally speaking the bigger the tank the easier it is to keep clean.
Overall, don't buy! It is a deathtrap!
