I hope it gets banned too. It's one of those things like it may be cute but it is an unrealistic enviroment for any animal to live. I hope most of the buyers take the animal out and have a more suitable habbitat for it.

Here is another one. It is from 2008 so it is old. Probably banned now.

If it was possible I'd buy all of those fish and turtles just to free them into their natural environment. That wouldn't be a great idea either due to the fact that they'd probably use all the money to buy more fish to put inside those horrible containers. I support the ban of these trinkets 100%.

Oh I know. I am sorry PlakatFighter if you took offense, but in todays society it is sad to see how so many things go famous for everyone liking the item or buying it. (Maybe I should of made a more general statement.) For example the tiny dog craze, every one wants a tiny dog to carry around and dress. People need to go back and think were the roots of things are

i saw those things yesterday, and signed a petition to get them banned. they're horrid. D: poor things die before the stuff runs out. one person DID buy one, just to rescue the turtle. it's horrid, but pretty common. i mean, in Japan, you can buy Marimo balls in teeny cell phone charms. i guess someone else decided to try turtles and goldfish? ;A:

No offense is taken, and I know you didn't mean to be racist or offensive by saying this, but it's good to keep in mind that that pretty much anything that says "No offense meant" or "not to be racist" will tend to offend or be racist. Next time, don't just take one specific group or race and say "they do this, they do that", because there is an equal chance that anyone of any race will be like that. :)


As for your links, it really is sad, but chances are the vendors are doing what they need to do to make money, even if it isn't morally correct.

Louis Vuitton purses are actually really well made purses, and for many people a tradition. And you say you see "millions", well most of the ones you see are fake, and you make it sound like you are bunching everyone together that buys designer purses. Did you ever think so many people have them because they might actually be hardy handbags? They last for decades and can be passed down. I happen to have several, and I also happen to not be a sheep.

Sorry to be off-topic, but I had to say something.




Ugh the turtle and fish thing is soo sad :(

It reminds me of in Mexico how they sell those tiny turtles in those little plastic things with the tiny palm tree.

That's just awful. I hope someone arrests whoever's selling them for abuse.

Those 'charms' make the Aqua-Block look nice.
