    Completely unfit for purpose, these things shouldn’t be sold any more. Far too small for ANY fish, even tiny ones, let alone goldfish which produce a lot of poop, can grow to 12-15 inches and live for 20 years or more. They need a tank with a filter (as do any fish), otherwise they end up swimming in their own waste. Anyone fancy going swimming in a sewer? I think not. The production of waste causes ammonia to build up in the tank, which burns the fish and damages their gills, leading very quickly to death. It’s also worth mentioning that the filter should be “cycled” before adding any fish, to establish colonies of bacteria which break down the waste – without this, the filter is useless. This is done by adding household ammonia to the tank. Try searching the Internet for “fishless cycling” for more info. Goldfish also need plenty of space to swim around, especially when they start to get bigger. Would you keep a dog in a rabbit hutch? Keeping a fish in a tiny bowl like this would be the equivalent. The general recommendation is minimum 140 litres for one goldfish, and an extra 40 litres for every additional fish.
    If you haven’t got space for a tank that size, there are plenty of smaller fish you can keep in a smaller tank – 30, 40 litres or so (still much bigger than this bowl!), especially if you look at tropical fish – it’s a myth that these are harder to keep, you just need a heater but otherwise the general care requirements are the same. Heaters are cheap to buy and run, and once you’ve set it to the right temperature and checked it is working as it should, it will keep the tank at the right temperature with minimal maintenance. A suitably sized, properly maintained, filtered tank will just need a 20% water change once a week and an occasional clean – no need to take the fish out, drain the tank and scrub it out!!

    Perfect for triops, tadpoles or robofish!, 17 July 2013

    The robofish playset we wanted was out of stock at Hawkins Bazar and Smyths Toys, but this nice toy fishbowl was exactly what we needed for the little electronic clownfish we got him, and a lot cheaper. He was thrilled, and didn’t guess that it wasn’t the certified playset! We are now using it for our triops, as it’s just the right size for them. Next year we plan to nab some frogspawn, so we are having good use out of it!

    Do not buy – CRUEL, 5 Aug 2014

    This review is from: World Of Pets – Goldfish Starter Kit Includes Fish Bowl Gravel & Plant (Misc.)
    When buying a goldfish I wish people would do some proper research, although it doesn’t take much to realise that a small bowl is an inappropriate domicile. Think about it like this I could adopt a greyhound puppy and put her in a 30inch crate. Of course she would fit, I would I feed her and talk to her through the crate and she’d appear happy because that is all she knows.

    But that puppy is going to grow. And if she doesn’t have the necessary space she is going to get extremely uncomfortable. And her bones will grow deformed in order to fit the space. She won’t have any space to excercise and so her muscles will atrophy and it will be a slow and painful death for the poor dog.

    So if you wouldn’t treat a dog or cat like that, please do not do it to a defenceless fish.
