And we wonder why people crush their tanks with fish?

I am setting here "working" and looking at a TFH mag. The first page has a oceanic aquarium ad with a 72 gal bow front with the stainless canopy and stand. Well I happen to noticed the fish in the picture. I started counting and got a grand total of 52 clown, engineer gobies, psuedo chromis etc. We know better but people new to the hobby would want a tank "like that" I was just in amazement at the amount of fish they showed in the tank. Yes I know it is just marketing, and just a picture..

It's actually quite common to see tanks like that (with that many fish) set up at trade shows for the aquarium industry.

I guess that explains why my auto insurance is so expensive.
