The Stupid Fish Tank Thread

There's a LOT of really stupid, inappropriate, or just downright cruel fish tanks out there... And most of them seem aimed at bettas!

I thought it'd be interesting to have a thread for 'em all.

My #1 Stupid Fish Tank is the 'betta bow" - it's not the most outrageous of designs, but for the love of Mike! Can it get any smaller? People who put bettas in these because they think this is awesome, or who sell them to first-time betta owners need to be mechanically compacted and stuffed in one.

This tank is a lot like the one Maisy posted, but when I read the first review I actually facepalmed myself. This person said, and I quote:

"I got this and absolutely loved it I first got it and put two male bettas in it. they both died because of some disease that grows on their fins. when they died i put two fancy guppies, one white cloud danio, and a ghost shrimp in their, (fyi that one gallon for every fish is totally bogus) im turning it into a community tank and looking to add two or three more small fish in their."

WHAT !?!?!?

If you guys want to see any cruel fish tanks, just walk by where they sell the bettas. It is really stupid that they sell really small containers by them. People then think those containers are suitable, funny how the brain works.

I hope that these are eventually banned or something.

UGGGGH. They were selling those nasty bowls with the lights at a pet store I visited recently. Daughter and I made loud, derisive sounds. As you do.

Kfryman, those idiotic heart shaped ones? Wanna buy some slow, toxic DEATH for your sweetheart on V-day? urgh...

Starbetta, here's an article about those warped iPond things. The pet store manager? Yeah, there's a gem of a human being:
Quote:
iPond is a tiny fish tank with a speaker built into the bottom for enjoying iPod music while watching a fish being leisurely bored to death. The iPond is causing huge controversy in Australia because of its particularly small size according to the Sydney Morning Herald (link). Pets Paradise is selling Siamese fighting fish with each iPond (view to a kill) aquatic chamber of despair. "I'm claustrophobic myself, said Callie Beardsley manager of Pets R Pets stores, "I sat sobbing as I stared at my iPond the entire time I listened to Andrea Bocelli singing "Con te partiro". I felt so bad for that little fishy fish, but the tank is too cute."
One store in Sydney has reported selling out of the $70 device while other outlets are reporting brisk sales of the iPond. There is no way to be sure if the iPond is as harmful to fish as experts are making it out to be, but it has certainly agitated a lot of cheerless activists in Sydney, which may ultimately be worth it after all.
