Lol..Some people don't like being teached. Or you'll end up with a black eye.

But..Yeah..Just how awful it is. Discus yet. Discus are pretty hardy but they shouldn't be subjected to such overcrowded conditions.
teached?

You know what the definition of hobby is: something of interest that is going to cost you lots of money!

I'm ready for the pressure.
The drama and the pleasure!
If there is one thing I want to see here, it's HUMOR.
I believe I can fly!
I believe I can touch the sky!
I think about it every night and day!
I stand in awe of my body.

The discus looked OK but the Clown loached looked stressed and suffering form some kind of white patches. It could also be one of those show offs that puts a lot of fish in a tank to take the picture and then removes them to good homes. I have seen this amano tank contests where they remove all the equipments and add double to triple the fish for the picture. They also do it for specialty effects like underwater waterfalls and such.

I agree that if the tanks are always that way that is really bad but the fish look so shell shocked I don't actually think they are like that all the time. If they are, someone needs to let the fish take a couple bites out of their fingers.

I'm shocked that you all visited that video and noone thought to post a comment suggesting that the tank owner join here so that he/she might learn a bit about proper fishkeeping.

Take pride in what you do, for it is a reflection of who you are.

I private messaged one of the guys with the disgustingly overstocked tank (had 6 goldfish in a 6 gallon) and recommended here for advice, but apparently he "knew everything he needed to". I doubt that was true, but you can't force them...
