Ok my family (mom and sister) dont think there is such a thing as to small a tank for a small fish..(betta in 1/2 gallon bowl... zebra danios in 10 gallons..) and recently they think if its a schooling fish there isnt a need to have them in a school..
the tanks in question are 2 ten gallons and my 55 gallon...

10 gallon #1
1 German Blue Ram
2 Zebra Danios
4 Cory Cats (emerald)
1 Silver Hatchet Fish
1 Fresh Water Flounder
2 Black Phantom Tetras
1 Black Skirt Tetra
1 Blueberry Tetra (dyed...)

10 gallon #2
1 Peperd Cory
1 Albino Cory
1 Bronze Cory
an un ending amount of feeder mollies and feeder guppies that they saved as they were mixed in with ghost shrimp... (wont let me feed to my big fish..)
2 cherry Barbs
2 Long Finned Zebra Danios
2 Normal Zebra Danios
1 Common Pleco

Then because of the way a fungus killed off almost everything in a 29 gallon tank we had they wanted 1 of the 2 last survivors in the tank... they wanted to put in a yellow lab (to big to be eaten for now) in the tank listed in my signature... this cant be good combos... any sujestions?

Prove them wrong. If you have your own tank or can claim one as your own, show them what difference there is when the fish are kept in conditions that favor their health and welfare. If they can't see that it makes a difference then chalk it up to pig headedness. Some people can't be taught and won't listen to anything that goes against what they want to do.

Give them some reading material with important points highlighted. I also like fish_4_all's suggestions.
