You would think that teenagers would be the rudest customers when really it’s mostly old, middle-aged people.
when i played a lot of doom last year i thought these lil guys were wearing red like biking shorts but its blood or something
It’s not little shorts?
They’re much less funny now

Grow fresh produce right in the comfort of your own home - beans, basil, thyme, baby greens, oregano, mint, parsley, spinach and so many other delicious foods! This closed-loop ecosystem uses the fish waste to naturally fertilize the plants above. In turn, the plants clean the water for your pet fish.
Share this for Kickstarter. It’s amazing.
i want one so much
ehh i wouldn’t buy this
at best, it’s adequate. 3 gallons is survivable for a betta, but it isn’t ideal. General consensus among betta keepers tends to average out at around 5 gallons for the smallest tank, and they do very well in even larger tanks. bettas are tough, and will probably survive, but if you’re only concerned about your pet SURVIVING instead of thriving, maybe you shouldn’t keep one.
furthermore, if you’re keeping a betta here, you need a heater. you’ll have to buy one separately, because this kit doesn’t include one.
This claims you don’t have to do any water changes. NOPE. DO THEM. minimum of one fourth every week or so. one review i read even spoke about their fish getting sick because they didn’t change the water. water changes aren’t really negotiable. also, the components (gravel, air hose, etc) will get messy, and you have to clean those, too. this advertises itself as a hands-free system, and it isn’t. the directions say you’ll need one minute of maintenance a day to care for the tank. they don’t talk about proper water cycling or monitoring nitrate and ammonia levels or anything, which is frankly irresponsible.
also, algae is gonna be a problem. the website recommends snails to control it, but people have also reported bettas killing the snails. it’s a very cramped environment!
also, just as a small thing—in all the advertisements they show this horribly barren-looking tank. bettas like places to hide! this is a very poor example of how your fish should be kept.
it’s possible you can have a healthy fish in a setup like this, but it’s too cramped for my liking, and the directions are either incorrect and omit too much important information for me to trust it. when in doubt, I say err on the side of caution, so I plan to steer clear of this.Posted on July 24, 2014 at 4:40 AM
Laughing forever at “I always knew this would happen”
