I can't find this tank!!!

Does anyone know where I can find this 1.25 gallon aquarium? It looks amazing but the petco in my area didn't have it and I looked everywhere online for it. I've seen a couple people on youtube with it and I want it SO BAD.

It comes with black/wood frame attachments.

If you're thinking of it for a betta, please don't. 1.25gal isn't enough for a betta. Just because they show one on there, doesn't mean the betta is happy. Would you like to live you entire life in a closet?

20g platy, , 2 x 10g shrimp, 3 x 20g shrimp, 7.5g shrimp and 1 great dane/mastiff puppy.

I have always been right in the middle with my feelings of keeping bettas in small containers. I know they can't be kept in a little dish of water but at the same time they don't really need a 20 gallon aquarium either. I have had bettas with different personalities and some of them hated being in a tank bigger than a few gallons. Others enjoyed swimming around a 29 gallon. If I had to keep any fish in a bowl I would always say if your limited to a bowl get a betta. As long as you keep the temp stable and change 25% to 40% of there water a week most should do fine. Just keep the surface free from scum by using a bubbler. I would not go under 1 gallon though. And I would recommend 3 to 5 gallons to be ideal.

Just my opinion!

Oh come on, this is PERFECT for my room! It's stylish and is way better than the 1/4 and 1/2 gallon kits they sell everywhere. I'm not gonna crowd it with bamboo and I'll take good care of it. This for a betta, is like me living in my family room 1 foot per inch of my body instead of a gallon. I just really need to find this tank for sale!!

If your wanting to put a betta in something like that I would suggest you not bring it up on the internet as people don't take kindly to that kind of thing.


I am not saying I recommend putting a betta in that, I know I wouldn't, but there is worse you could put a betta in. Like I said I have had bettas more happy in a small tank vs big tanks in the past.

That does seem a bit on the small side, especially with the frog!

But it seems as though though it is a well kept betta bowl, or box.

I had that same filter on a de-rimmed 5 gallon tank for a betta and it was very happy. I bet you could get a 5 gallon tank and get some would and make trim for it and it would look just as nice but it would also give the betta a bit more room.

I'd suggest a nice shrimp bowl or small filtered shrimp tank in this. Please do let me know if you find it.

My cousin has two fish bowls that she switches the betta between once a week, no air stone or anything. The betta is so unhappy and is always at the top of the bowl. I told her she should get a 5gal but she said it was too big and had all these excuses. I just said whatevs, you wouldn't suffocate a dog in a small room filled with his poop and piss.

stylish?
"stylish" is hardly a reason to put a fish in there. just because it looks good doesn't mean it's big enough...
i'm with kiran, put shrimp in that if you really want it. NOT a betta.
don't put a betta in anything less than a heated, filtered 4 gallon tank...

If I can find a place that sells it. That was the point of this thread, but I'm being attacked by a bunch of jerks rather instead of assisting me. I will eventually get a larger tank some time in the future but for now I want this tank.

You're not being attacked.

Maybe its because you're new here and that's your first impression but it's called constructive criticism. People aren't calling you stupid for wanting to place a Betta in there, they're simply saying to not put a Betta in a tank that small.

I dunno how to say this in a nice way but if you're stubborn about wanting that tank for a betta, then ignore what people say, seeing that you're completely glued to that tank.

First rule of aquarium forums: ask for help with something but don't say what your going to do with it. Lmao. This reminds me of all the comments about tangs on the reef forums.

Sorry to say from what I can tell its been discontinued.
