Goldfish Keychain


I just got an email about something that I want to share so we can somehow get the word out and get bring more attention to this…

This is being sold in China and based on how it looks, there’s definitely no filtration or anyway to feed the goldfish which means it doesn’t last long if even for a day. Horrible. It’s got the logo of the China Olympics on there but it’s definitely not a sanctioned item for sure.

Unfortunately I’m not sure how to stop this if it’s even possible but maybe somebody reading this can somehow bring more attention to it in some other ways.

Wow. To think that SOMEONE thought this was a good idea. Lets hope the goldfish in platform shoes don’t come back…

Hoooo, Ms. Goldfish! I really had to throw my head back and laugh while reading your post. I know just how you feel; I was horrified when I saw my grandson handing his sisters fish from his pocket to put in their aquarium, with their hands!
I frightened them my shriek, they apolojectly explained that the fish; the swimming fish weren’t real. They must be filled with air some how, but I’m telling you they swims around and stops as if looking at you, then swims away; powered, I believe with air. They’re now so cute to me that I know what they are. They’re really good for little people who won’t keep their fingers out of the tank when parents afforded the real fish for them. Children do love fish, but a little too much I think, so the bubble fish are good for them; and, the cat!

Wow, this is wrong. I mean i can barely be in a small room for short periods of time without freaking out. Cant imagin what is going through his head.

P.S. this is almost as bad as the lightbulb TINY fish bowls

Ok, honestly, there are much bigger issues in the world that people need to deal with rather than worrying about some fish that has been put inside of a key chain. This world has issues such as starving children, and the devastation caused by the Haiti earthquakes and all you dumb people are worried about a fish?! Wake up people. Stop this garbage about saving fish when there are people’s lives that are more valuable that are dying everyday because people like you would rather save a damn fish. Shut the hell up and try to save a human life instead!

@wth, this was written over 2 years before to earthquakes in Haiti. Also, this is a website dedicated to FISH. What do you expect it to be about? Get off your soapbox.

So….did anyone ever figure anything out about this….it’s downright AWFUL. Also, I agree 100% with learn2read…. IF you have fish…then you understand. I feel bad for having my fish in a 55 gallon as compared to where they would probably prefer to be. Poor little guys…
