Honestly, any tank we keep a fish in is too small. The question is by how much, which makes it all relative to ones perspective. One thing you have to keep in mind is that this is a hobby, which means there are many, many ways to do it. Some people are more concerned about the fish's well being than others. Some people go overboard being concerned about the fish. It's all okay - for THEM. What you have to decide is how much room YOUR fish need to swim. My general rule is the swim test. If the fish doesn't have room to swim at top speed, then the tank is too small.
