i disagree.
a fish stored in a proper size tank is acceptable. yes, the ocean is bigger but if your stocking the tanks with the proper fish your not overstocking. i personally keep captive bred fish which means im not taking any from the ocean. in the wild, clowns wont stray far from what they host.

18 fish that all get minimum 7inches with most growing to 1'+ in a 220 is overstocked! not only is territories and swimming room an issue but its a huge bio-load as well. im not going to keep pressing that issue, if the original poster wants to cease to notice what he is doing is wrong, soon he will learn from his mistakes which honestly is a shame that all of this livestock is at risk.

i do however agree that you can have a 2,000 gallon tank with unhealthy fish.

If the fish are healthy then we sould not judge each others tanks. You could have a 2000 gallon tank with plenty of swimming room and the fish could be unhealthy.
Indeed all of our tanks are over stocked as i said in an earlier post, but a fish that swims miles and miles a day looking for food is in a box that has several fish that are bigger if not bigger and space is limited is an issue that'll only get worst.

agreed.

And God said, Let us make man in our image, after our likeness: and let them have dominion over the fish of the sea...
