Hanging Aquarium from Opulent Items

Hanging Aquarium: Cooler as Terrarium?

So, at first glance, this Hanging Aquarium ($50) looks pretty cool. Meant for your Beta fish (and as a desk lamp), the compact hanging tank is illuminated by a small LED light on top, and comes in two finishes to satisfy your modern or antique tastes.

It seems that this would be another great solution to solve some of your space issues if you long for a nice aquatic touch in your pad, but I can't imagine putting fishies in it! I think it'd be better used as an awesome terrarium. What do you guys think – cool or totally uncool?

Lots of negative comments?! I own one and it's awesome. Easy to clean (use a gallon of distilled water for convenience) As far as the size goes. My fish has a great life. Its a little beta fish for goodness sake. I love all life and respect it like the rest of you. Caring for fish has been a hobby of mine for twenty years and I've had salt, brackish, and fresh water. This little bowl is great I cant say it enough. its very sturdy, there is a stand that helps you clean it. You just have to be careful like anything. Think about it, whens the last time you dropped your macbook? Never? and if you do break it he can live in the bathroom sink (distilled water) till you get him a new bowl. Which they sell @ home depot in the lighting section. All you haters stop with the oh he doesnt have enough room. You know yall probably have fat dogs that dont get enough attention either! give him a house to live in and talk and interact with him and it will give you much stress relief! Mine even lays on the branches of the mini bonsai tree to sleep! Coolest fish Ive ever owned...besides a blowfish...those things are the coolest!!

I can see all sorts of issues with this as a fish tank. Firstly, nothing much would fit in it - even if they started out that way. Betta's really ARE happier in larger tanks - those are way too small. Secondly ... if you accidentally bumped it ... you'd have a sea-sick fish (:rotfl:) and water all over.

I like it, but everytime I get a fish, they die like instantly. One of them even plunged itself head first into the gravel at the bottom of the tank.

Its way too small for a fish. Bettas aren't meant to live in small containers, they're just sold that way. My betta lives in a 5 gallon tank and he's MUCH happier than the little plastic container he was living in before. I think the terrarium idea is much better.

It's really cute, but yeah, I wouldn't put a fish in it, either. The terrarium idea is cool!

I'd use it as a terrarium. I wouldn't take the chance with it getting knocked over with my little fish in it. It is cute though.
