I looked up the info on this one to see the size. You can't believe what this said!

Glass Betta Bowl - Ivy - 4 in.

Make a perfect little "betta bowl" for your desk. Once dechlorinated water is added to the bowl all you need is pebbles and a betta and enjoy your new friend.

This litle bowl is perfect for more than your new betta...just add a little imagination They make beautiful centerpieces for parties and weddings (with bettas, flowers, beads, or other decorations), add fresh or dried flowers for elegant arrangements, or use them in tons of other craft projects
Size:
Approximately 3 3/4" L x 3 3/4" W x 4" H

Makes me sick!

OMG! that's just rediculous, to market that as a decoration! the plants in the tank are the decoration, put there for the betta's needs, but the betta himself is not. Oh and I love the part where it says, 'All you need is pebbles and a betta' and 'they make good cernterpeices'. Wow. that's all i should say to stay safe lol. Wow.

This has to be the worst I've ever seen.

The black one is really a speaker that you could plug your ipod into and it would play your music out loud. Dubbed the 'ipond' Seriously, why? Thankfully this product was discontinued because of animal cruelty.

Here's another view.

This is what the advertisement says...
These iPond is combination of iPod & Aquarium. The iPond is an iPod accessory which combines a speaker with a tiny aquarium. A single fish can lives in about 650 millilitres of water. It’s all the rage in Australia but some of the people consider it as animal cruelty.
The fighting ability of fish to breathe air from the surface, the tank was far too small for it to receive adequate oxygen. The small volume of water would lead to rapid change in temperature and this meant the tropical fish would not live long……………

I was at a wedding recently where the reception had betta's in the centerpieces. They were the brides personal collection and each one was in a gallon with anubias plants and bamboo and only for that day until they went home to their proper homes. It was rather neat.

She would not let me take my centerpiece. :( lol

It was what stirred my to get back into fish keeping after 6 months of having no tanks.

Yea neenjar, I think that is okay. It was only for a couple hours you know? But I think it is such a shame when people use them for centerpeices in their home, and that tiny thing is actually their permanant home.

Yeah it was only a few hours and the fish seemed to love all the attention they got, none looked stressed. On tiny homes I agree. Gallon vases are not too bad for short term storage ;)

They should make the people buying these things live in a 3x3ft room for a week and then let them decide on buying these so called "Betta Aquariums"
