Question New Product "My BFF" My Best Fish Friend Magic Pet

What do you think of this product that I found on Ebay? It is to hatch up to 8 Killifish in a 1 gallon bowl in 24 hours for kids to raise. It said they don't need heaters or air pumps needed. They don't have filters either.

I don't know anything about Killifish, but it doesn't seem like a very good idea to me. What do you think? Killifish sure are beautiful though!

I think it's the next species of fish abuse. I wonder how healthy they are being hatched in cold water in a small tank.

I doubt they could be healthy at all. I saw a comment where a guy said he had his killfish in a pond that hatched from that kit. That sounds a lot more right than keeping 8 in a 1 gallon bowl.

Yes, I agree. I couldn't even buy this kit just to hatch them. I would feel horrible giving money to people that promote this as okay. So now the most abused fish numbers are growing. Goldfish, bettas, and Killifish .

I'm glad my niece came to me and my dad when she wanted to keep fish, we set her on the right track with her own 10 gallon tank for he fishies. The tank stays clean the fish stay healthy....as well as grow to sizes even we weren't expecting.O.O But still no bowls and no abuse.

But this, this is inexcusable! To tell kids that keeping a living creature like that is alright, I'd love to shove the creators of this in a 6x6 room and see how they like it!>:(
