I was at a pet store and they had maybe a 55-60G with about 8-10 various cichlids
and a few other medium size fish (not sure the types though)....Well, the cichlids
were going at it, especially the bright blue one. The other non cichlids and sucker fish
were not being bothered, but it didn't look like a very calm environment for them all.
Should I say something? They also kept like 10 cichlids in a tank about 12 by 12 inches,
and they were nipping each other it looked like...I'm a betta person, but it just struck me
as odd. I know I wouldn't put 10 male bettas in that kind of space!
What kills me is, they had like a whole 50 ft WALL full of empty tanks they could be using!
WTH? The employees are nice but they are amazed when I tell them the correct info
about bettas or fish in general care....they said they are adding salt water fish, but
I can just see those all dying within a few weeks there unless they all start researching more.
Argh...I blame the manager, he's a dufus from what I've seen.
