Re: Spongebob betta tank?!!! #5
You'd think there would be some EU regulation regarding minimum size for fish tanks.

I agree, but who police it unless its done under the petshop licence and when they check out how they look after the animals check the items they sell are suitable and if not they lose their licence, di

I know, when you see some of the small plastic ones they sell in the pet shops you think what would you keep in them besides maybe a small spider

Just seen it and am astounded.

How many kids will want these after seeing the movie and put fish through such cruelty.

Merchandising has a place and that is not it.

Re: Spongebob betta tank?!!! #10
that's awful.

I've also see quite a few of those very narrow tanks that are almost like picture frames on e-bay. I can't see that they can make very good homes either. With such a small surface area, oxygen levels must be very low.

A lot of people just see fish as ornaments, rather than living creatures.
just keep swimming..........
