Does this not scare you?

Check out this link:

http://www.petsolutions.com/default....0312&SID=PGRAB

Isn't that scary they have a yellow tang, 2 maroon clowns, what looks like 4 damsels, and 2 bangaii cardinals.

Thats a total of 9 fish and somehow I feel like there are more fish hiding.

In a 12 gallon that is outrageous what do you guys think?

TIA

I have 10 fish in a 75g, and people tell me I have a big bio-load. You'd have to do PWC like 3 times a day to maintain that 12 gallon

It could be a faked picture, although the refraction on the side pane makes it look real.

From what I hear, it's not uncommon for trade shows and marketing material to be stocked like this temporarily..

I work in the graphics feild and i can tell u with 99% certainty that those fish were placed there digitaly. And there is a very good chance that the tank itself was digitaly altered. They probably started with a picture of the tank because the hood looks real, but the rest was touched up on a computer.

The more fish, the more color, the more appealing to peopple. I think that is just a sales thing....
