Desktop Aquarium-Highly Inappropriate
 
This link will direct you to the small tank I'm referring to.http://www.smilies.our-local.co.uk/i...iles/shake.gif
It's annoying when it features a goldfish inside such a small tank.:redmad: Worse, the whole setup is too unnatural and fancy goldfish are not meant to live in such a small tank.:frustrated:
That tank is more suitable for a betta but not danios as danios will obviously need more swimming space.

Some companies and manufactureres never learn at all.http://www.smilies.our-local.co.uk/i.../Sarcastic.gif

Sorry but we should boycott the way advertisements show. Goldfish in small tanks?http://www.smilies.our-local.co.uk/i.../Sarcastic.gif This is simply discouraging.:frustrated: It tends to encourage beginners to keep goldfish in small tanks. 'Tis a shame that famous chain stores like PetSmart even feature such ads which are simply too discouraging on the aquarist's part.http://www.smilies.our-local.co.uk/i.../Sarcastic.gif But fun for beginners.http://www.smilies.our-local.co.uk/i...iles/shake.gif

Goldfish should never be kept in small tanks. Not when they poop a lot and this would mean high ammonia level on the start especially in cramped space.:redmad:

I posted this simply to discourage beginners from following the advertisements. I advise against placing goldfish in a small tank. Research first before you buy a fish.:wink2:

Ugh..I hate when I see that too. In this catalog I have for ThatFishPlace, it has a picture of about 10 goldfish stuffed in a 20 gallon, you're right, it is really discouraging.

I used to keep my 3 goldies in a 30 gallon when I first bought them, when they were small. It was a real tall tank too so there wasn't a whole lot of sideways swimming room. After I switched them to my new tank, it was such a good feeling to see them swimming around happily with sooo much more room.
