This is sooo rediculous it can't be real!!

I came across this on ebay, this guy is selling a wine glass with pebbles in it as a "Live Betta Fish Bowl" and charging $19.99 for it!!

here is the link for the auction just take a look and tell me if I am seeing this wrong, there can not be something this absolutely rediculous, can there??

http://www.ebay.com/itm/live-betta-f...item27cad8dbb2

Isn't there something we can do collectively about people like this?

Okay I just sent this

Do you know it is so wrong to be selling a live fish saying it can live in a small wine glass ? Betta are amazing fish and deserve such a better life then living in something this small, yeah with enough water changes with conditioned water they might live but how would you like to live in closet ? They are also a topical fish and need warm water to live in from 76-82 degrees. So make that a cold closet !

Have a heart please and sell at least something that will hold a gallon if not more. Save the glasses for wine as they were meant to be used for not a fish !!!!

Did you look at her other auctions? :(

http://www.ebay.com/itm/live-betta-f...item27cad8de6b

"Betta fish are very hardy fish that can survive in almost any condition of water."

I want to say something too, but am not sure if it's against the rules on Ebay.

MWAHAHAHA I worked around it. >.> I sent a question about the betta.. it's legit!! And informative. :)

"The risk of the glass breaking in transit and puncturing the bag is too high and the glass is far, far, far too small for any living creature. The ammonia would build up so fast that the water would have to be changed two or three times a -day-! I would love to buy him, he is a beautiful fish, but have no interest in the tiny glass you are selling. Would it be any cheaper to ship the betta without the glass and pebbles?"

SERIOUSLY...fish are not decorations they are living breathing animals. You can't just chain a dog to a chair to 'decorate' your home, you CAN go to jail for it. I wish people could go to jail for things like this too. Sadly fish need more rights when it comes to animal cruelty.
