I send emails to WalMart and Petsmart almost once a week. One of the WalMarts that are near me doesn't sell any tank under 1/2 gallon now. When I see a small tank in a store, I move all of the tanks to the back and put big tanks in front of them and write notes on it to other customers to visit this site, along with others. I go overboard... xD

I haven't seen any trolls. Just people who won't take our advice.

Unfortunately some people will think that the coffee maker is unique & the cup makes a great bowl. I would even wager that some newbie's will try it because its larger than most things we see betta's being kept and sold in at the stores.

That's a bit... unsanitary. I mean, all fish issues aside, what happens when the fish dies and you either want to use it as a coffee maker or sell it? ... Ugh. Just... Ew.
