    i think the motion of the car going over bumps etc. would scare the crap out of them if not kill them, would be a good talking point when people get in your car though :rolleyes:

    Can't off the top of my head think of any legal reason why you couldn't...I'm sure animal activists would have something to say about it though haha.

    Water would slosh everywhere...

    How would you power the filtration system when the car's off?

    With the weather being warm, the car will soon get too hot for them, and you'll end up with dead fish - it's just like the whole thing about leaving dogs in cars. And then in winter, the water will freeze, and you'll end up with dead fish.

    You say this as if it's an issue that should be casually overlooked. :erm:

    If its a goldfish then a filter system is not needed.

    Even though this is a troll thread, how would you ensure water didn't splash out onto wiring and potentially cause a fire? [worst case scenario]

    You shouldn't need a fishbowl in your damn car to be able to start a conversation, tbh.

    Something to stop the water from both getting hot and freezing, without poisoning the fish.

    I'm not sure the fish would find it cool or next level.
    Someone mentioned Goldfish. As someone who really loves my two Goldfish I have to beg you not to put any in this tank if you ever manage to get one! I can't think of any type of Goldfish that wouldn't outgrow it really quickly, and they do need a filter.

    That about sums it up.

    Why don't you go for a cactus, rather than fish? It won't suffer, will be low maintenance, doesn't mind the temperature... But would still be a great conversation starter! How many people do you know who drive around with a cactus on their dashboard?

    Or, you could just have them in your home.

    I am completely baffled as to why anyone would want to keep fish in their car.
