      Poor fish. Poor people, as well. Shame.

      When I first saw this advertised, the beta fish on the left was swimming. She surely wasn't lying flat on the glass rocks!
    • Brillig
      It's no longer at wrapables; it's nowhere to be found. I just saw it in the Overstock.com catalogue, but it's not on the web, and I threw the catalogue out. Dang. If someone finds it, please let me know. I could build a nice terrarium for hydroponic plants in there. Not good for fish, I agree! If it were bigger and had plants AND fish, that would help, but hey! It's only about $29.00.

      Susan, I can't see your reply anywhere but my email notification... The genus name is indeed "Betta", regardless of how silly it sounds to you. Saying "baytuh" is the wrong pronunciation no matter how easily it rolls off the tongue. That said, I do say it wrong because it's easier, and people sometimes look at me strange when I say Betta. Thanks for understanding that this thing is a death trap.

      Brillig, First off,thanks for the Beta speling correction. Not sure if you looked at all the things on this list, but here are very similar ones here: http://www.thisnext.com/item/33985F7B/35DCE766/Halve-Glass-Bookends

    These bookends are halves of fish bowls that can be used as aquariums or décor pieces. Fill it with pet fish, plants, sand, seashells, etc.

    This is the coolest set of bookends I have ever seen! Only Siamese Fighting Fish or fish that could live without a filter could live in these bookends, but I think they would be really cool as a housewarming gift or as a gift for someone who loves books or fish as pets.

    A nice distraction to life in a cube, a cubicle that is. Whether you work in a cubicle or not we all have stress at some part in the work day and research shows that watching aquariums has proven to lower blood pressure and calm nerves.

    SOMETHING ABOUT WATER USED IN PRACTICAL WAYS MAKES IT SEEM SO ELEGANT! THIS SET OF FISH BOWL BOOKENDS IS A PIECE OF ART. IRONIC TO MIX ANIMALS WE CAN'T COMMUNICATE WITH INTO A PIECE OF FURNITURE WE USE TO HOUSE THINGS THAT EDUCATE!

    I think these are super cool. Unfortunately, I'm not sure if I could have them, as I'd worry about knocking them over when I was grabbing a book, but I recommend this for someone less clumsy than I.

    What a tease this is. I want to purchase this or something much like it but nowhere I've looked has any thing available. I had one that my husband broke and we've been looking for a replacement w absolutely no luck at all. I am so upset! I was using it as a home for my sons' fish. It was perfect for their room. It was perfect period anyway I chose to use it. I am so upset about this.

    These are really cute, but if you buy them, keep in mind that these are very small bowls for bettas, and no other fish (including goldfish) would survive in them. Bettas CAN survive in small spaces like this, but they won't thrive, their lives will likely be fairly short, and they will be prone to disease. Just to keep your fish alive you'll need to do a full water change for each "bowl" a couple times a week at a minimum (a wise betta owner would change water every other day in containers this size). In short, if you're not up to 16-20 water changes a month, look past the "cuteness factor" and pass on these as homes for your fish.

      I got these bowl peices at Ben Franklin craft store.

    I have these and my beta survives fine. You MUST use filtered water and it must remain at room temperature. Beta's are an Asian fish and are found in warm puddles - which is why they thrive in small space environments. I change my beta's water once every 3 months - and it STAYS crystal clear even then. You should NOT over-feed your beta (3-4 pellets per day is enough) and mine can easily survive over an extended weekend with no food. My beta lives in one of the glass sections - in the other glass section I placed white sand, some small palmtrees, a shell, and a starfish. I get tons of compliments on it it as it is an office decoration at work! I'm thinking about making these for my co-workers for Christmas.

      SwsMiss' you really need to do your research and educate yourself on the nitrogen cycle. Ammonia builds up in a bowl that small within days, not months. Go buy an ammonia test kit and see for your self. Your fish has a built in cute face but is living a horrible life in pain, please change the water every 2 days and visit aquamaniacs dot net for accurate information on how to properly care for a Betta splendans. Aside from that, they do not live in small puddles, they live in vast sheet flows and rice paddies which often have very low oxygen content, which is why they developed a labyrinth organ for breathing and do not require supplemental aeration in the tank. Think about it, they are called fighting fish, they are not communal in nature and will kill each other on sight, how on earth would it be possible for the species to thrive if they lived together in small puddles?? Again, research the species and the nitrogen cycle and you will see that you are completely wrong in your aquarium husbandry methodology. Maybe I should start an online class... fish for dummies.
