iPond, How Could This Be Trendy Or Cool?

How would you like living in a tank with a water capacity of not more than 650millilitres?


A new idiotic iPod accessory has hit the market in Australia, but not only does it seem absolutely stupid and ridiculous, it’s also a torture device:

The iPond combines a speaker with a tiny aquarium and fish have to live in about 650 millilitres of water, when according to experts they actually need 10 litres!

RSPCA spokesman Hugh Wirth said despite the fighting fish’s ability to breathe air from the surface, the tank was far too small for it to receive adequate oxygen. The small volume of water would lead to rapid temperature change and this meant the tropical fish would not live long, he said. The iPond should be banned, Dr Wirth said.
