    How did you find this stuff – or am I right and you were Googling ‘My BFF’ hoping to find one?

    I posted this on our FB page and surprisingly quite a few folk see it as a positive way to get kids interested in the hobby which I guess is true to an extent?

    no offence, but it’s typically American.
    what about the poor kids when their ‘BFF’ dies of old age after several months?

    No offense taken. It is typically American.

    The idea isn’t a bad one–it’s the marketing I’m not crazy about. On the up side, it might get a few kids to spend a little less time with text messaging and video games.

    I just wish they’d give out better information. Nothing about filtration for example.

    Best Practices for fully grown My Best Fish Friends
    The following tips will help ensure that MY BFF are as
    happy as possible:
    – The more space that adult fish have, the happier and
    healthier they will be.
    – Treat tap water properly before putting it in the
    bowl/freshwater-and-brackish-water-fishes, as most municipal water has
    chlorine in it, which can kill fish.
    – Plants help with cleaning the water and provide
    oxygen, shelter, hiding places, and the occasional snack.
    – Keep the fish in an area with a constant temperature
    between 65 and 850F.
    – The natural waste of fish emits ammonia, which can
    accumulate, so clean the bowl regularly, but never
    empty it completely. Leave 1/3 of the old water in the
    bowl.
    – Create places for the fish to hide and explore. Ceramic
    objects, natural rocks, and plants work well.
    – Be aware of the environment outside the aquarium.
    Suddenly switching on a bright light in a dark room
    can startle fish, and vibrations from a television or a
    stereo can alarm and stress them.
    – Keep all harmful chemicals away from the aquarium.
    Cigarette smoke, paint fumes, and aerosol sprays can
    be toxic if they are absorbed into the water.
    – Don’t overfeed! Uneaten food and waste material
    are broken down into ammonia and nitrites, which
    are toxic.

    Plus the fact they reckon Nothobranchius korthausae is from South America AND South Africa when in fact it’s native to Tanzania in East Africa.

    I sometimes use that line on women. It never works.

    There are Aplocheilus lineatus in the video too. Only 8 eggs though? That’s a bit miserly.

    I don’t agree with this…along with betta vases, goldfish globes and other cruelty in a box stuff…

    sure it gets more kids interested, but how many will do an ounce of research?

    The idea in principle is good. It’s just a shame it couldn’t be done a bit more responsibly.

    And yeah, 8 eggs. Not a lot to get going with really!
