The text of the ad was pretty brief, and I don't think it specified, but I hope that's the case: that would make sense! That seems like an important detail to include, though. Hopefully, someone bought it, with the plan of selling off them off or moving them to other tanks soon!

There's been a guy trying to sell breeding colonies for a year or so. Hopefully. That many adult plecs in a 30 would be poop soup

There was a picture: I couldn't really tell what was going on, but they did look small. But even 60 juveniles in a 30 gal seems like a lot, even temporarily. But then again, I don't know much about plecos: I've never really understood their appeal.

As a display tank it would be awefully stocked, as a breeder receiving frequent wc's, it's not all that uncommon.

craigslist bad finds

My family friend told me about this ad she saw a few years back. It was an ad for "30+ Oscar's Fish in 55 Gallon Acariumm"
There were some young oscars, but also FANCY GOLDFISH and GUPPIES in the aquarium. GUPPIES.

"Water is jungle-theme red and dark"

Really hoped this was just a joke until she showed me a picture on her camera.

No idea how any of the fish were alive...

Maybe the goldfish and guppies were feeders for the Oscars? Still crazy, though!
