I'm sitting waiting for the dentist and watching their reef/saltwater tank, which looks pretty well kept and not over stocked with fish. But I'm watching the tv, tuned to a home makeover show... For a decorating accent... they stuffed a betta in a tiny bowl with no heater or filtration
Then just a trip to to pet store... For some reason to them its not ok to overclock fancy goldfish, but comets... Omg I wanna cry. They stick.... Over 30 in one tank... The water is horrible. Other fish are over stocked in tiny tanks, live plants seem to be stuck in dirty water and have dead leaves and unkempt.
I wanna have a pond in my future dream house, and have a huge pond filled with those common goldfish, think those are the comets.
From coming from petsmart, my Goldie has held up well! He's a fighter, after stuck in a 10g for long he started having problems. He's now happy and healthy in a new tank! Wish I could do this with all the fish in the store
