Best portable fish tank.

The fact I'm writing a review on something I bought from Amazon is something im ashamed of. I may be ashamed but this has to be said for people to read and understand what I went through. So, it's a great day the birds are chirping and I'm getting ready for a festival, I look on Amazon and find this tent. Great reviews, cheap and quick delivery. I dish the money out and the tent arrives early! Perfect! Next day I decide to quickly set up the tent in my back garden to determine the actual size. The tent packed away itself was just bigger than a 2L bottle of Diet Coke which was excellent for me as id be carrying it a long way. Here's where my first problem came about; I popped the tent up to soon realise, this 2 man.. "TWO man" tent should have been named, "2 oompah loompa sized tent"
Not the end of the world I thought to myself. I'm just staying in it myself so it should be okay.
Arrived at the festival and pitched my tent. Pegs in. Ropes in. Door way up.
It rains on the first night... but don't worry!! This tent had great reviews about keeping water out... Fantastic absolutey no need to panic. BUT these reviews were so far from the truth. I may as well have left my tent and lay down in the middle of the Amazon river. I got soaked. There was literally no point being in that tent, the water just came straight through and filled the tent up. Tom Daley could have dived into my tent and still never reached the bottom of the gathered water. I was freezing and couldn't sleep. I actually recall lying there about 6am whispering to myself, "come on daylight hurry up" in hope I'd warm up. By using the word lying what I should have said was "curled up in a ball trying not to touch the sides of the tent position".
It honestly goes down in my history as the most disappointing purchase I've ever made. If I could give it 0 stars and pay £100 to forget the experience I would.
Don't buy this tent unless you are the size of a haribo sweet and live in a climate where rain never falls.
