Neat gadget for a low price – Mini Illuminated USB Aquarium with Fish Reviews

Involvement:General (knows how to use it) - Ownership:more than 1 month

Pros:
For such a low price, it's a neat little desk ornament. Has battery slot for two AA's if you don't want to run it off of the USB, but never really used batteries in it so no idea how long you'll get off them. Great distraction from doing actual work ;)
Cons:
Lasted about a month before it broke. The light still works, but the motor just grinds without actually turning the propeller to spin the water. While it did worked though, it was pretty loud.
Other:
If I get a little time, I'm going to see if I can carve the glue off of the motor to see if I can fix the propeller. Comes apart relatively easily.
Bottomline:
Long story short: you get what you pay for.
