it's awful, and I've had another look round youtube at horribly overstocked tanks, and was even more shocked at other tanks. :oops: :cry:

There are a lot of great tanks on there, but you're right...some are insane! I once saw a full grown Oscar in a 10 gallon tank on youtube! :x :(

:eek:mg: that is really bad..my god I have two 15ins koi fish , one bottom feeder and one goldfish about 5 ins long..in a 65gallon and I feel bad..so bad that i got a 100gallon on oder.. :)

But that person needs to get more tanks and maybe read up on the hobby a lil before just going out buying any fish he/she likes...

Lol..Some people don't like being taught.:crazy: Or you'll end up with a black eye.:mrgreen:

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

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 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... :?
