#11
Has anyone got one of these? I like to know how big it is and what do you get in the box. Obviously no fish or water included.
#12
Great Deal - My kid will love it!!!
#13
great find i have reserved on my son wanted this he will be over the moon
#14
Yeah excellent spot. I can't find any extra information on this as regards to size and materials etc but for 10 quid can't go wrong. I suspect it will be made of tough plastic as it designed for kids.

Can't wait to start playi...erm...will make a great gift. Ahem.

I've reserved one :)

Edit: Decided to reserve 2 :):)

You can claim a free pair of binoculars via leaflet with this product. I think it is these. They're a fiver from Amazon.

Nice spot. Rep left.

Amazon say it's 2Kg so I'm guessing it's plastic. Looks like there will be a lot of dead fishes soon and less parents having to go buy a big ol' tank for mr goldfish

[SIZE=-1]Features unique underwater feeding dispenser. Just add water and fish! 7+ years. Unit Measurement:, 37 x 27 x 22.5cm



This will not survive the life of most fish. It will stunt the growth of any goldfish causing internal organs to collapse and eventually killing it in the least humane way possible. It has no heater and is therefore unsuitable for tropical fish.
This is only really safe for ONE siamise fighting fish (betta splendens) or a trio of ghost shrimp or a snail (or combination thereof).
Please read a fish keeping forum before using these, and remember that you need to let bacteria levels build up to dispose of fish waste (ammonia) BEFORE you add the biomass(ie the fish!)

Lastly don't forget to do partial water changes with treated water or you will just have dead fish, and a very smelly tank.

Thanks Edi my daughter has been want this tank for ages just reserved one NO MORE MITHERING:thumbsup: :thumbsup:

Good call Sean! The moment I saw this I thought 'cruelty to animals'. My view of National Geograaphic has fallen. Remember folks just one Betta (siamease fighting fish) will be happy... maybe with some giant water snails, which are very kiddy friendly, and will help clean up the tank.

Triops or sea monkeys would go well with this too considering the magnifying class built in.
#22
Also if anyone who gets one of these would like some aquatic plants I can give cuttings that will grow well in the light levels this tank will provide; would need an SAE with a sandwich bag to be sent to me though as otherwise I'll end up out of pocket on p + p.

Not much difference to supermarket meat then?
#24
Just picked one up today,
The tank has five plastic plants of various sizes attatched to the bottom and a feeding pod that lets you lower the food in and attract the fish to the viewing scope. There are also full instructions mentioning reccomended types/numbers of fish and extras you could buy, such as a small pump.
HTH someone. :-D
#25
Lot of vegetarians here.
#26
'One' Siamease fighting fish? Wheres the fighting then?
#27
Well you could add two if you want both dead.
Some videos on youtube showing what happens.

vicci.. does that mean there is no pump inc?
No pump no filter? Almost as bad as the "waterbaby" tanks that went round a while back.

Manufacturers always reccomend odd fish such as one of schooling fish or tropical fish in cold tanks..

Ah well no-one's going to stop you putting an 18 inch plecostomus catfish in a tank but once it's dead, smells, and is blocking the bottom of your toilet I wouldn't expect any sympathy.
#28
Been and picked up my fishtank for my son. It looks great, and yes it is plastic but it has no pump in it or gravel so you need to buy these seperately from your pet store. Not sure how much it will all cost once we have bought fish, pump, gravel etc but I like it and I am sure my son will love it too. Can't go wrong for £9.99 BARGAIN!!!:thumbsup:
#29
Would it be possible for you to give us some dimensions of it please!!
#30
Sorry, just noticed Seans already put them in!!
#31
reserved one in oldham if anyone is interested (changed my mind!)

Ta x
#32
Ive reserved one to but dont think I'll bother now so theres one available in Bristol :thumbsup:
#33
I picked mine up yesterday and they are fine for a couple of small fish, and there is lots in the tank for them to play with. Its quite a fun looking tank and will be perfect for any child......and me! :-D

[SIZE=2]seancambell, if we were going for the ghost shrimp option, whats to stop us ending up with a million of the things if they start breeding - or is it fairly easy to indentify/get an all male or all female set?[/SIZE]
#35
Ghost shrimp are reasonably easy to identify.. and they rarely breed in home aquarium. If they do almost any pet shop will take them off your hands in exchange for store credit.

Many thanks.

Could the shrimps be mixed with a single snail - I guess an Apple Snail would be best?

Should be fine, both are pretty passive. Does mean you'll need to be fairly careful about food as snails need some calcium to survive else eventually their shells disintegreate. A little plantlife does shrimp the world of good.. and the little clay pots most aquatics shops sell for 25p are great for shrimp also.

Great, thanks :thumbsup: rep left .

My son would love this and fortunately he is more in to crustaceans than fish, so it would be perfect (for the money at least) as I agree it looks very unsuitable for fish.
