This item is really more a Betta bowl then a lamp. The light element is tiny, smaller then a pencil eraser and puts out minimal heat(and light). The bowl itself is much larger then it seems in the picture, certainly much roomier then many of the glass bowls that are sold in pet stores for Bettas.
Calling this item a lamp is really misleading. Think of it as a suspended betta bowl that offers a unique and accesible view of your fish, with a tiny light that will cause the bowl to glow nicely. But you can't read with it.
This bowl is adorable for a few of the sea monkeys to frolic in and I don't really have to worry about there not being enough space.
This being said, don't put any kind of fish in this bowl. There's just not room for it. Any fish, even a betta, would have a severely shortened life span from living in such cramped conditions.
- has an LED light that adds a nice cool blue color
- If you can't replace the bowl, the whole product becomes useless
- It's cruel to keep anything in this bowl, way too small
I originally gave this product 5 stars but after owning it for over a year I decided to delete the review and write a new one. Originally, the bowl had broken while doing a water change. I was putting the stones in the bowl and they broke through the bottom. So I contacted the company and they sent me a replacement for free. I was very happy that they helped me. The bowl came, I put the pebbles in, and my fish was back in his home.
I think I had the bowl for another few months and the same thing happened again. So I contacted the company to ask them if I could buy a replacement bowl from them. No response. I tried to contact the company on several occasions, offering to pay for the bowl and shipping costs but I never heard back from them. Tried looking for something in the store to replace the glass with and still be able to use the lamp. I couldn't find anything.
So this Betta bowl cost me around $35 and lasted for 5-6 months. What a waste of money. The glass should have been made thicker. I was careful when adding the pebbles in the bowl (especially the 2nd one) and it still broke while doing a water change. Thank god the fish wasn't in the bowl when it broke. The fact is that if the bowl breaks (and it does, easily) the whole product becomes useless. The $35-40 spent could have been spent on something bigger and more durable than this bowl.
Perhaps it was better the bowl broke. I researched about Betta fish and learned that they need something that is at least a gallon (bigger is better).Read more ›
That being said, it is hard to clean, hard to feed and more importantly WAY to small for any fish. My betta fish stopped building bubble nests as soon as I place him into this tank, which meant that he was not happy.. and after a few weeks I placed him a bigger bowl, where he thrives and bubbles like crazy.
Every single betta information I read talks about how this size bowl is extremely bad for the fish, and frankly I hate dead fish. If they were to make a bigger, easier to clean and feed version of this I might pick it up, but until then no way.
