MY FIRST POST!!!!!  jolly1 Best Fish Friends is basically fish eggs, and you can raise the fry to grow to adults. It's one of those "Not Sold In Stores" TV offers, and it's marketed towards kids. In the commercial they say you can keep the fish in a DISH!!!!!!  Angry Also, fry are very delicate, they can't just be left in a dish and "grow." Apparently, the fish you're supposed to raise are killifish. What has the world come to??????  kopfpatsch What bad fish products have you found?

Hi, AquariumFish and welcome to Badman's

Actually you are right that these are killifish.  They are the annual type and the way you get them normally is to buy the eggs and hatch them.  You put them in a small amount of water and move them to about a 10 gallon tank when they've had a chance to grow a bit.  It isn't done in a dish but can be in a small container.  They live for about a year...hence the reason they're called "annuals"  Smiley

When in doubt, do a water change.

Yeah, it's not raising the fish in a small container that I mind, it's the fact that they advertise that you can keep them as adults in the small container. Also, fry are very delicate and need special care. They can't just "grow" to adults in a dish. But you do make some good points that I missed. Thanks for replying.  happy

  Welcome to Badmans!

  The product is not bad, it's the marketing that stinks.  Selling killiefish eggs is a good idea, but there should be some responsible advice on how to care for them.

Yeah, I've been thinking it over, and now I actually like the idea. But, as you said, they should give good advice. I think more people should teach kids proper fishkeeping, and the responsibilities within it, instead of, "They're just fish, their only purpose is decoration, they don't have feelings," etc.

despite being a newbie, I saw a product that I find very difficult to believe in . A pet supply store has something called aquabella, an additive you put in your tank and let's you go a year with no water changes. I actually find water changes relaxing. Perhaps fishkeeping is the wrong hobby if one objects to doing water changes on a regular basis.

I know, right? If there's one thing I hate it's that whole, "Water changes are boring and a waste of time, but you still want to decorate your living room with fish," stuff. I doubt this aquabella thing works.

Products such as that can harm your fish. Not changing your water for a year will kill them. If it sounds too good to be true then it simply means that someone wants your money for nothing.
