Question Hanging fish bowls?

I've seen these fish bowls floating around Ebay and Amazon, and was just wondering your guys' oponions on them. Hanging fish bowl

I think it looks neat, and would be a real space saver, but it would be difficult to heat. Its dimensions are 11(h) x 11(l) x4.5 (w), and I don't know how many gallons that is. It looks just a little cramped for a betta. Maybe better for some smaller fish, like two or three tetras.

What do you guys think?

Ya thats too small for a betta , bettas need at lest 2 gallons or bigger and the tetras need at least 5 gallons because their shoaling fish and yes thats how you spell shoal

I've seen those before and I think they're like .5Gs which is WAY too small for a betta. Like Jayy said, they need at least 2Gs. And it'd be way too small for tetras also.

They have these horrid things here called ula-loops now that are only 1.5 litres! They look a bit like those, but they're far too small for a betta, and they would be hard to heat and clean.

HATE it.
The only thing I would put in there is a fake fish.

My friends roomate had those - even had a betta in there.

I came back about 2 months later and there was no fish. I'm not sure how often she changed the water, but needless to say, the fish was long gone before then.
