"FABULOUS acrylic Office fish tank made by perfect solutions

Fully outfitted and made to scale with built-in office suite including desk with Big Fish name plate, filing cabinet, chair, computer, desk lamp, waste basket, pencil cup, picture frame and potted plant.

Easy to clean...just rinse under tap and refill. hmm

Fun & relaxing...suitable for goldfish, guppies, tetras, etc. yea right

PERFECT for the hard to buy for person on your list, young or old alike.

*In original box.
*Measure approx. 7 3/4 inches wide, 5 inches deep and 6 1/4 inches tall. can a fish even turn round?

Wish someday people would care more about the fish and not just convenience and crazyness. At the end of the day who the hell would want a horrid tacky plastic thing like that? let alone what fish would like such a small home, not be able to move and swim in its own waste 24/7 until it dies.

That's a 1 gallon tank. It would fit a Beta well enough. Not that it would have the best life, but it would fit somewhat comfortably. There are also real small filters for tanks like that. You could also buy some small live plants.

I was bought something similar to that, for my birthday a while back. As far as I know it is still sat up in my loft as I refuse to use it!

You could probably keep some ghost shrimp in one of those.

probably. a betta would probably get it's tail stuck Very Happy anyway, I checked the bid history. nobody wanted to buy it, unsurprisingly.

LOL and I thought our tank was small.

Probably 10 gal. But when I grew up my parents had a huge tank.

mmmm, I have found a number of those on ebay and seen one in a resturant. the poor fish could bearly turn around.I also saw one of the employies with a bag of othe rfsih and relsed them into the tank right away, didn't even let the adjust to temp as it was winter outside and it looks as if the fish were pretty cold in there. the tank its self had far too many fish in it I I guessed they removed about five fish a day. I very much doubt they did any mantience on it and didn't cycle it. I decided it was better not to support them and left ( well their food tasted like they found it in a dumpster and just flicked off all the cat crap).

I think it looks awesome, I wish I had known about it sooner. I wouldnt mind using that to breed snails in or having a little ghost shrimp in it. I also have a little filter for a tank that size so the fish wouldnt be in its own waste.

I think betas and shrimp could LIVE in it. Live but not be completely healthy.

And if a beta isnt healthy in a tank that small, how do you think a goldfish is gonna do? Wink
