Classified ads with overstuffed tanks

Anyone seeing overstuffed tanks in their local ads? I surf the general for-sale category on Craigslist once in a while... there's a LOT of aqua gear for sale here.

So tonight I see two ads, not sure which sounds worse:

"29 gallon fish tank with 4 piranhas"


"I have a 30 gal tall aquarium with lights, gravel accessories, etc...
The tank comes with all of my fish too.
1 Black Oscar (over 6 inches)
1 African Chichlid (large, but smaller than the Oscar)
1 Large Pleco
assorted smaller fish and plants
all the chemicals, fish food, etc...

You take it down and haul it off and the sooner the better as I'm tired of it and don't want to mess with it any more"

Wondering what 'smaller fish' are surviving that tank with the Oscar in it. But not wondering enough to ask the guy. And then there's the ad with the 14" arowana...

All cwt posts are implicitly appended with "just my two cents".

"20 gallon fresh water aquarium with a 10 inch silver arowana"

this ad has popped up about 4 times in the last 3 weeks.

I saw one earlier today with an oscar and a couple other large fish in a 29 gallon. I just rolled my eyes. Sad that the fish have to live through that.

although, I have to say that the arowana in a 20gal is just insane.
