Fish out of water

An incredibly kind, generous friend who must be completely unaware of my commitment issues recently gifted me with a fish. Mr. Limpet has incredible blue and red markings but his fishbowl was not doing him justice. I immediately set to finding him a home that was a little more stylish. There isn't a lot out there. the exception is The 1984 Fishbowl, by Danny Cheung. A modern twist on the age old glass fish bowl. It's quirky shape is eye catching, the windows are made of magnified glass providing a detailed look at your goldfish, while the opaque walls provide refuge. Life inside a goldfish bowl can't be a lot of fun without a little privacy! The fishbowl was inspired by and takes its name from the novel 1984 by George Orwell. I'm not sure of the lifespan of a goldfish but at $469 The 1984 Fishbowl is quite a commitment. Hopefully Mr. Limpet comes from sturdy stock.
