I have purchased many of these mini running press kits from Amazon and this has to be my favorite! I just love it! I had a tiny, round, glass bowl so I filled it with the colored gravel and plastic greenery that was included in the kit and then just added some water and the fish and it looks like a real mini aquarium on my desk. I find it very relaxing to wave the rod around and watch the fish float around and spin. Its really cute if you need to decorate your desk or a corner spot. Its my minor distraction while waiting for the computer to download :)!

I thought this little aquarium was pretty cool at first, but I soon lost interest...the magnet on the wand isn't very powerful so I can't really make my fish move. Now the aquarium just sits in the corner of my desk and the lid is completely fogged over and there are tiny bubbles all over the walls of the aquarium so I can't really see inside. I might use a small fishbowl as another reviewer has suggested...the aquarium itself is just too small.

*Update 11/12/13: This update is for people like Carol, who do not read product descriptions and then leave offensive comments on my post. This does not come with real fish. It comes with two tiny plastic fish with magnets in their bellies that allow you to make them swim using a magnetic wand. It's a TOY. The "aquarium" itself is just a tiny box, about the size of a stack of business cards. Of course you shouldn't put a real fish in it. I can't believe I have to explain this. Anyway, it was a cute TOY that kept my interest for a little while, but it's long gone now. I would recommend this for the young or the young at heart.

Shipping took a little longer than expected.. BUT overall a great toy! I bought it for myself Thinking it looked cool and is cool! So after I set it up with the fish and everything the magnetic force with the fish and the wand was OKAY, but I had some stronger magnets and connected it to the wand to let it work a little better . THe backrounds are a sunken ship, a dead guy (I thought was a little inapropiated), And a shark. The plant is a little cluncky with the little space so if you want it for decoration leave the plant in, if not, take it out. But great, fun, entertaing toy. Hope you enjoy!

It's definitely a fun little gift, but don't expect more than you pay for. It's basically a novelty. My husband got a good laugh out of it. He'd been asking for an aquarium for his office, but he got this miniature version instead. The magnets do move the fish around, which is fun (for about 5 minutes). Still, a fun little gift.
