There’s no place like home, unless you’re a pet fish.

This is what you get for a week long stretch of good behavior 
(and a back to school gift) if you live in my house:
If you're good, and you live here, you could have this too.
My son named him Nemo.   The fish is neither talented nor smart (as far as I can tell), so Picasso and Einstein were out, but even Bob would have been more original than having a pet fish called Nemo. Let's face it people: there's no convincing a four-year-old once his mind's made up, so Nemo 2.0 (or 2million.0) is home.  Anyway, I digress.

The downside about being a pet goldfish is that you have to live in a fishbowl.  And I can't be positive, but I'm not sure there's an upside.  That being the case, why does fish bowl decor have to be so depressing?  Plastic skulls, wrecked ships, ancient ruins...and fish gravel that looks like crayon shavings -- no, thank you.
There's no place like home, unless you're a pet goldfish.
Choices for fishbowl decor are quite limited.
These are better, but still:
Put your fish to work?  Who wants to live in their office?

Or worse, in their bathroom?

*(If you're a practical person, please read no further.  The following requires a suspension of all rational thought.)*  Here it is: pet stores should start selling some quality miniature furniture for fish bowls, à la the following:
A whole line of miniature moderns to make your fishbowl stylish.

With that in mind, here's what I've put together for Nemo 2.0's stylish abode:
In all seriousness though, PETA needs to be called about this disaster:
Do you really think your pet fish enjoy the view provided in this set up?
Not nice at all!

How in the world did you think you could get away with showing my toilet to the world without my permission?

By the way, I put a little more thought into naming my goldfish: Goldy 1, 2, 3, 4, etc.

we, your victimized fish gave her permission...(and then we asked her to buy you some clorox)...
goldy 1, 2, 2, 4, 5....
