Lasts longer than any other brand I've tried! It's in my hair as I write this. =) Starts to turn a bit green after a while for me...but still great either way. Fades quicker than some of the other colors I have used from this brand..but like I said, still lasts longer than OTHER brands.

I LOVE this wonderful blue-green color, it reminds me of blue cotton candy and makes me smile with good memories of eating the sugary stuff when I was little. This dye works better than Manic Panic because it comes out exactly like it promises it will. The color is awesome, though would be better on bleached hair than on non. However, this will stain your bathtub, especially if you have an acrylic tub liner (like what bath-fitter puts in). I didn't mess mine up too bad, just a few tiny droplets on the floor of the tub that will come out with soap and hot water, but its a lot better to just avoid the whole mess by probably laying down plastic or something in case of stray drops of dye. Overall, I love the color, it's just what I always wanted.

I've been using special effects for many many years now and i have to admit fishbowl has been my favorite so far. It's bluish green and looks amazing on bleach blonde hair, it really reminds me of mermaids and children's books i used to read when i was little. It gets lighter and lighter with every wash unlike other hair dyes where you wash your hair once and the color's gone. To get the best result you should definitely bleach your hair first then dye it because fishbowl is not a *dominant* color(like dark blue or dark green) it's fairly light. Also, it doesn't stain your skin like dark colors do.I absolutely recommend this color.

This is my all-time favorite hair dye. It's a great color, and it sticks around A LOT longer than most green-tint dyes.
This dye, along with "Iguana Green" by Special Effects, made me into a fan after swearing by Manic Panic for 7 years.
Love it!

This is the first time I use Special Effects. I might have overestimated all the reviews I read before purchasing. I did like the color but it was not at all what I was expecting. The formula was quite thick for my experience. I did however see a very nice color when I used it with conditioner. (Some people recommended I do that next time). After a few days it kinda went from a dark turquoise to green. I don't really like the green but it doesn't look as bad as other green's Iv'e seen before. What I can say is that this stuff doesn't stain as much as other dye's I have used before. I still have about half the bottle left. If I can get the color right with the conditioner after my first attempt fades out, I will most definitely be purchasing this again.

Word to the wise, though: If you plan to dye your hair with Special Effects and do periodic upkeep on the color, purchase several bottles at once. The folks who make it only do so a couple times a year, so you will have to go on a hunt for it at certain times if you need it year-round. Just save yourself the trouble and stock up.

It's a really great hairdye; it's long-lasting (for what it is: no semipermanent stays around a good while), the colors are rich and have a good fade (they don't tend to be murky and bland while fading out, just softer and muted), and my hair feels great and is shiny and healthy-looking post-process. I dye every two to three months and Special Effects doesn't destroy my hair.

I purchased fishbowl with the intention of mixing it with conditioner to a much lighter aqua mermaid color. However the pigment is so potent that even with a 50/50 mixture I got a very true fishbowl blue.
It was a beautiful color, but not what my intention was. I neglected the color (hoping for fade) and it stayed very strong for the next month.

I gave it 4 out of 5 stars, because it is a beautiful and staining color, but it does fade to a very green tinted aqua if neglected and upkempt.

Special effects is without question the best weird coloured hair dye. Because it simply lasts the longest, it blows all the other brand away. The colours are vivid the first time you dye it. It fades away slowly with each washing into a lighter beautiful colour, For example blue fades to purple. It's like I'm getting two colours for one dye job. I love it! wish colour shampoo and conditioning masks while washing with only cold water, I can get this dye to last over 8 weeks before I want a touch up!

The dye lasts FOREVER! (Just kidding, but it does last a very long time - I had it in my hair for over 2 months and it still showed! It's also easy to dye over (well I dyed over with the blue velvet special effects dye, and it's darker).

It came out in both shades of blue (turquoisy) and sea green - think Mermaid! It's actually nice having both colors and when it comes out turquoise it's super vibrant and beautiful.

Fish Bowl gives a true, bright turquoise color to very light blonde (level 10) hair. Yellower blonde hair will appear more green but it is still a nice color. Bleeds very little when washing but fades fairly quickly, especially for Special Effects, hence the three-star rating.
