Your friends tank proves nothing other than he can keep a fish alive in less than ideal conditions. Which stresses the fish. When he has it running with no fish deaths for 15 years then well say ok he made it work

There is less than optimal conditions for your fish in your tank... That is FACT

Trouble is, when ego meets ignorance, the needs of the fish just don't rate against the 'wants' of a person who is prepared to sacrifice the fish's quality of life on order to get what they themselves want.

Okay, I get it. You know more about fish than all icthyologists that have researched them for decades. You and your friend are the daring and enlightened pioneers of modern day fish keeping.

I read this entire discussion just because it got interesting ... Wow this might be better than twitter . Tropical = warmer temps , goldfish = colder waters . That's why people keep them in ponds
