These are pictures I found while watching tv. No wonder the public is so misinformed about caring to fish. One of these pictures is from an educational show! I won't mention any names, since I'm not sure that's legal, but still, does this bother anyone else but me?

Im.prettu sure the name of the show is "call of the Wildman" ??? Just a hunch it is our duty as responsible human beings to sift through nonsensical rubbish such as this and make well informed decisions based off our own research.. not something spewed on a silly TV show..

The red tailed shark, albino shark, and what appears to be a gourami as well as some small schooling fish in a tank that appears to be no more than 20 gallons.

Yeah I know what you mean it's like these people who think it's fine to put a betta in a vase or even a wine glass come on really? Common sense should really come into play somewhere I'm sure that most people wouldn't like to live in a place no bigger than a wardrobe that they would have to pee and poop in......... That's my opinion anyway

Second picture looks to have all dog supplies with an aquarium in the background... Plus the aquarium has two red tail sharks (one black, one albino) in the same small-ish tank.

I don't think that's a real aquarium but I see how someone might get the wrong idea from it. But it's no different then a pet store they put large fish in tiny tanks.
