It's amazing how much the goldfish stereotype is still fed...

I do see many of those as nice shrimp tanks though

Some of these wouldn't be so bad if they were not stuffed with goldfish. Surely that sink one is around 10 gallons?

+1. And the last one is actually a mechanism to save water. The water that you wash your hands with comes from the tank. If you don't want the fish to run out of water, you have to turn the faucet off! Wash your hands fast to save the fish! Clever but cruel.

The shoe looks particularly tiny. Not even big enough for a betta

If you look at it closely, the tank is actually a narrow area that covers the actual toilet tank with a black backing. So, the fish are actually swimming in a narrow layer of water.

It's quite sad when the 'tank' is more noticeable than the contents!

First off out of every picture so far all but one are goldfish or betta.
Wonder why we abuse them so much?
Nice topic M I am sure you have seen these also;
Live Fish and Reptiles Sold as Keychains in China | Amusing Planet

One must remember that all cultures place different value on things.
I probably can't say much more without wandering far off topic!

Well not much but this;
Are these the same people who brought us the mystical/magical kio and actually discovered fish keeping?????

We are now a money driven planet.
Not good IMO.....

Fish arent really looked upon as animals like mammals are. Heck, theres vegetarians that eat fish because its apparently not meat.

I would be creeped out that there's fish swimming behind me, watching me use the potty.

You don't, because apparently fish are disposable. Some of these tanks are cool, but very unethical.

I don't think the people who thought of this design care about personal hygiene. Lol. Or maybe they just throw a new fish in there every day. Also, the water gets "changed" every time someone uses the sink. It looks like a public restroom, so it gets changed all the time...with chlorinated water! Yikes!
