Fish have a very sensitive nerve running down both sides of their bodies called a lateral line. They feel vibrations in the water and automatically flinch because of this nerve. Having fish in a sink will cause constant vibrations through the water, stressing the fish very badly to the point they might die.

Also, goldfish get way too big for that stupid sink, there's no water turbulence to help oxygen exchange so they'll probably suffocate, there's no easy way to clean or filter so ammonia will spike and poison them.

These are the terrible results of the "It's just a fish" mentality. :( I actually like the R2-D2 one, though - I'd have that. :p I wouldn't keep goldies in it, though, obviously.

If people want some asthetically amazing tanks, I don't understand why they don't go for the Fluval Edge, the Bi-Orb Life, an aquarium coffee table or a long wall-mounted tank. Those things are all beautiful (albeit expensive) and can hold a decent amount of water, to keep fish happy and healthy.

Oh yeah - it's because it's just a fish. :(

That's my friend's attitude, which is why her tank water is urine colored and her guppy fry suddenly "all get eaten" periodically. I've given up trying to say anything about it.

I've got a much better idea for people who buy these little boxes so small that the fish can't even turn around - fish stickers! You can put them anywhere, have as many different species as you like, put male Bettas together with no consequence, put fresh and salt together! And the best part - NO maintenance! So if you're the type who forgets to feed your fish because he ceased to be fun 2 days after you got him, and you can't see him in that dirty, smelly old bowl anyway, I recommended fish stickers. They don't move, but then neither did your dead Betta.

Yeah, these horrid little "tanks" make me angry. A lot of them are marketed as toys, which is just unconscionable.

Anyone who buys something like this isn't going to worry about that. They will just toss it in the trash and move on to the next shiny thing that catches their eye.
