Each Funquarium Shark Shaped Aquarium is lovingly and proudly handmade - with the facial features lovingly hand painted with an oil-based paint - which gives it its own unique character. As such, there are subtle variations in each one as well, just as between each real shark.

The shark is cartoonish in nature - based on the feisty Bull Shark which loves to head butt their victim before the actual attack - and quite satisfied in disposition when it has a full belly. But the joke is on Sharky when fish are happy and content swimming around in the belly of one of the most fierce and fascinating predators in Earth's history.

The Funquarium is made of Polyurethane Foam (sturdy and very light weight) around a one gallon plastic fish bowl. Its dimensions are 18" long x 11" wide x 8" tall. It weighs approximately 0.8 lbs. The top fin has two slots for the fish to breathe, or if used for a bank, to drop in change or dollar bills. For longer product life, make sure to pick Sharky up by the bowl and not the appendages. If an appendage does come off, of course it can be super glued back on, but proper handling is recommended.

Alternate uses: candy jar, bank (this is one "loan shark" you'll love doing business with!), or anything else you can safely imagine.

BONUS - Fish Bowl Tips:

One Betta is great for a bowl, but would be very aggressive with a second Betta - they are also called "Japanese Fighting Fish". White Cloud Minnows are also excellent for fish bowls. You can also add a few Ghost Shrimp and a Mystery Snail with either option. Just remember not to crowd your fishbowl - crowding is stressful and shortens the lives of your finny friends. Also, avoid placing the fish bowl in direct sunlight for your friends' health.

When filling your fish bowl with water - use bottled water or water conditioned tap water, not distilled or de-ionized water - leave an inch or two space at the top. You should replace about 20% of the water twice a week for the health of your fish. About 1/4" of gravel at the bottom is recommended. Stir the gravel before changing the water and be careful not to pour out gravel or fish when changing water.

To clean your fish bowl every few weeks, pour 80% of the water to another container and use a net to transfer the fish over too. Dump the rest of the water out, use paper towels to clean out the bowl, and rinse thoroughly. Transfer the water and fish (again with the net) back from the other container, and put a fresh 20% of new water in to bring it to its usual level.

Use floating fish food that is recommended for your type of fish, but don't overfeed them. Feed small pinches at a time until they stop eating it quickly. Uneaten food will become waste material and will cause you to have to clean your fish bowl more often for your friends health.

Fish, background, gravel, plants, coins, candy, and any other accessories are not included - they are only pictured to show some of the many ways you can customize your Funquarium.
