Fishball...

I was just thinking about my plec, and how he's quite active, but of course is limited to the size of his tank. :( He always seems as if he'd like to get out and have a look around...

Then i got to thinking about how i used to have a hampster and it had a little plastic ball that it used to run around the house in...

It wouldn't be too trick to make a watertight version that i could fill with water and put my plec in, and he could have a wander around the house while a watched telly. He could even go for walks to the park in it! :D

Just a thought for all thouse poor fish trapped in 4' boxes - let's give them a little more freedom hey?

For it to be truly watertight there would be no way of air getting in so the fish would suffocate.

Sorry, I know this wasn't meant to be serious...Just ahd to point it out.

Well, if it was a fairly big ball (I'm sure Rosie the RTC would appreciate one, and she's 2.5ft long!) you could leave a not fill it all the way up, leaving a bubble in there to allow o2 tranfer into the water. It wouldn't last for ever, but it'd do for a while round the house, Hell, you could get two and have races!

Or just get a lungfish like mine and put a plastic bag in your backpack and take the fish with you to the park that way.

Cunning idea Gump. How wet do Lungfish have to stay? If I wore damp jeans could he sit on my lap whilst I read him a story?

Sure could. Mine has spent the night on the floor twice now. Just no ruff material and have a good explanation why you have a huge fish in your lap.

Just thought of another use for the Fishball (pat. pending...)

Gambling! Now you can race two previously completely incompatable animals!

What's faster - A 2ft plec, or a Guinea Pig, a Lobster or a duck, a 9' mekong river catfish or a horse, a Sterbai cory or a kitten. The possibilities are endless!
