I can hardly believe and if I saw one in a pet store near me I would be jailed for the night ....
Luckily it is sparking outrage with many animal activists around the world and the RSPCA are calling for a ban on it. Unfortunately that did not stop it being sold out at a Sydney store and the sales being huge.
The $70 Ipond is being sold at Pets Paradise and Pet Goods Direct chains. Users can play their iPods through a speaker built into the bottom of the brick-shaped tank. The tank's water capacity is about 650millilitres once rocks are placed in it.
Pets Paradise is selling Siamese fighting fish with the iPond.
I'm not even going to mention what the poor fish has to go through with some pumping music blaring out of it's housing. Even if it does live it's not [a] life worth living ... it's really just a torture box.
Ahhhh what companies will do for money.... just so low! It is so sad that Betta's keep getting such a bad deal - such a waste of an extremely beautiful fish
While we are on the subject of being cruel to Betta's - #$%#@#%^**%^%^$%$%##$%!!!!!!!!
