Check out the Facebook conversation at the bottom of the page and add your support! I am currently in the minority in advocating for fish health. There's also an interesting conversation going on about animal rescue ethics.

I'm the FB profile with four names. If you don't want to post to FB via an external site, you can go like ThinkGeek or friend me (tell me who you are) and get to the conversation that way.

I'm seeing comments, guys - thanks! If you haven't already posted, please do so, and please consider writing to ThinkGeek directly and asking them to pull the product - or, as someone suggested, add an "awesome magnetic plastic fish instead."

By the way, the inch-per-gallon rule is useless - please, my fellow commenters, don't recommend it!

Agreed.

That would be like saying my 6" betta would need a 10 gallon, but my 3" goldfish only needs a 5 gallon.

That was me (both magnetic fish and the inch-pr-gallon). I'm sorry, I was using it for illustration purposes on the fly, I'll excise that from any other comments I make in the future. Don't worry, the only time we ever have our bettas in anything smaller than 2.5 gallons is when their tanks are being changed.

I know this is older but: commented, and emailed ThinkGeek directly. I have ordered from them in the past and planned on ordering for Christmas - not any more.

I never commented(I'm really not good at that sort of thing =/), BUT according to TG's website the tank is now on clearance. They won't be selling it anymore.
