How many dead fish have you flushed? Sorry to be so graphic during this most wonderful time of the year, but we went through quite an ordeal a couple of years ago when my son asked for fish for his birthday. We didn’t get the water right, and our tank claimed the life of several goldfish before we got it right. But then, even when we got it right, the fish only lasted for about 6 or 8 months.

Wouldn’t it be nice to know you could fix anything with a new set of batteries? And what’s more — it’s portable. No getting fish sitters when you are out of town. Just take it with you, or leave it behind!

Check out the new HEXBUG® Aquabot with Fishbowl:
