Metro Pets

By Felissa Benjamin

Admit it. You would love to come home to a fun, friendly face happy to see you after a stressful day at work. But you don’t want the hassle of walking a dog or cleaning the cat litter. Well, why not a get a fish? Sure, they lack the snuggle factor but there’s something fun about having something to come home to. Dress up your flipper in a stylish sphere or beautiful bowl. Choosing a creative bowl speaks volumes about your creativity, zest for life, and of course…your love for the fish!

Better Off With A Smile

Keep your fish smiling in this bowl. This happy tank is ideal for goldfish or other small fish. The top of the tank comes with air holes and the plastic material is easy to clean. You won’t help but smile when you come home to a grinning tank of fish.

One On Each End

Make a statement and dress up your bookshelves with fish bowl bookends. These are perfect for Japanese fighting fish (make sure you place only one in each or you might start a war!), preferably with books in between them. They come in two sizes (small and large) but both are equally stunning and useful.

Flying Fish

Forget an ordinary desk lamp, try this aquarium desk lamp and dress up your home or office. Not to mention enjoy a crisp white light and adorable little fish at your desk.

Yeehaw

For the adventurer in you, try setting your fish in the wild wild west. The TV-shaped fish bowl makes your flippery friend the star of every show. The cowhide cover keeps you out west no matter where you live! Get it in either 1 quart or 1 gallon.

Tea Time

It’s tea time for you and your fish. For a more unusual fish bowl try this tea cup (or coffee cup for you addicts). Just add cream and you’re good to go!

For The Kids

No matter how old you are sometimes you just never grow up. And why should you or your fish! Join SpongeBob SquarePants and all his friends at the bottom of the sea and let your fish have fun all day.

All bowls are available at: www.target.com, www.petco.com, www.chimpfeet.com, www.wrapables.com.
