Exclamation Uh, did I see this correctly?

The ads on the side are showing sales/discounted homes for betta fish...of course, it's all the very small unstuitable homes, so I'm just ignoring them...

But one of them made me do a double-take!



Over $200 for a dinky little glass bowl? Are you kidding me?

Pffft. I dont see anything on my laptop as I have an adblocker, but on my ipod i've seen... ads for human breast milkers? I dont know how to describe it. I took some screenshots on my ipod but I must have deleted them :(

pfffft. My very first betta a few years back came as a full-package deal-- that exact bowl with a fake plant, my fish himself, a pack of pellets, and even a singular bottle of water that had been prepared for cleaning his bowl with. For ten bucks. xD

Poor guy. I knew nothing AT ALL about bettas back then. :C

I heard something on one of the mods message boards that they have to put all these adds up to pay the bills even it it means showing little betta bowls for sale.

Well, it's not so much the showing of betta bowls that surprised me, I realize that advertisements are usually a big help to sites. Like I said, I can just ignore them-but who on earth would pay that much for a little glass bowl?! You can get a full tank setup for almost ten times less! :S
