We needed a creative alternative to the monotony of the bowl for our beastly little betta named "Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious". He displays a ferocious rigor in seemingly wanting to tear our eyes out when we approach the bowl for any reason. As such, we decided he needed to be higher up where everyone could be entertained by his Napoleon complex. This bowl, when mounted on a wall and filled with complementary landscape colors, will give a unique perspective to your little ninja's world. Not a visitor enters our house without commenting on how cool this half-bubble full of life is. And we never tire of the way our guests inevitably cozy up to the side to get a closer look, only to be jolted back when "Super" puffs himself up and attacks the side like Hannibal Lecter in a shiny, acrylic prison.
Novel idea and clever display for a fish bowl. My only complaint is that I wish the diameter was larger and thickness of the walls greater. 11" is a little small. 20" would be more impressive and create more impact. All in all, though, the product is worth the expense and interest.
The better model is available at ***. This picture is the same but it's not the actual product overstock sends. Different shape and way to hang on the ones they ship. Target also uses this picture and sends the cheap one that has a long plastic piece to hang.
- How did the image on site compare with the actual product? The ones sent have the hanging hole above the fish bowl on an extended piece of plastic
- How accurate was the on site description of the product? Not as pictured
- Please tell us about the quality of the product. The photo is of the better quality fish bowl but they sent the cheap ones

We did our daughter's room in an ocean theme. Hanging this bowl on a blue wall with blue & clear glass "stones" in the bottom has been a perfect habitat for her Beta fish and an amazing detail in her room. The fish is more active than he was in a larger, open glass bowl and seems more interested in what is happening in the room. So far, it has been terrific and everyone who has seen it has absolutely loved it.
This is a good way to have fish without the hassle of larger, costlier fish tanks. Purchased as a gift and friend absolutely love it. One large fish or two small ones are ideal and it is a great asset for a loner. You can come home from a hard days work and look at your beautiful fish inside your bubble tank. It takes a few moments to clean. Just remove fish and rock and wash and rinse. Would recommend as a gift for college student, or anyone who just prefer the aquamarine life without a lot of upkeep.
Fish bowl is very cute even though its not the exact model as pictured. The fish bowl sent is more round but still looks cute in my living room. My mom asked the other day "How do you clean it?" She thought it was part of the wall. Cute product, highly recommended!
- How did the image on site compare with the actual product? Product received wasn't as pictured but still adorable!
- Please tell us about the quality of the product. Excellent
It looks nice!! I have not tried it yet but I like the idea of seeing the Betta moving around. Its a molded piece of plastic which is not cheap. I couldnt find anything else that was this unusual I bought another for a gift-I figuered they would not have one
very cute, very petite, not many pieces, probably could have been cheaper for being so plain! other than that my fish loves it, i love it and my kittens love it. Definitely would suggest to a person with cats, they can sit and watch without being able to capture the fish! very cool buy.
I purchased this fish bowl for my daughter who has been begging for a tank. Best price online and in stores. It took a few days to arrive. It looks great! Hangs on the wall nice, but we have not gotten the fish yet. She loves it so far and we hope to keep the little guy alive... then we can try a bigger tank and more fish. I recommend it.
I purchased this fish bowl for my betta fish. I hung it on the bathroom wall and it looks very clean and modern. My fish has PLENTY of room to swim around so don't worry about the space when you purchase. Easy enough to remove from wall and clean. I clean once a week but I don't use soap; just rinse out with hot water. Have gotten lots of compliments from guests!! Great buy!
