So, in short, it is up to other people to choose without putting the well being of the fish into consideration? FlamingCod, by adding too many fish, not only are you putting the fish to risk of being stressed and eventually afflicted by several health issues, but you are wasting your time and money buying more fish because some of them wasted away. Do you realize how much money and time you can actually save if you simply try your best to keep what you have healthy and alive? It's very simple. Overcrowding, on the other hand, is another story and IMO frowned upon by several hobbyists unless he/she can put time and efforts to ensure the overcrowded environment is kept clean as much as possible.
