is this overstocking?

lol, this guy deserves to be in a pond. I was checking craigslist and came across this. the guy said its a 10g tank... i figured i better post the pictures instead of the link because every time somebody posts the link, it gets deleted before everybody gets to see. If i had a pond, id go get it... theyre only asking $20 for everything

LOL! Yeah, he looks hungry. His body probably quit growing, but not his organs. Poor baby! Do you have any Japanese gardens around you anywhere? I wonder if they would take him and you could have the tank. That is a good deal and it looks really clean!

yeah im sure some kid will get it or something... im amazed at how clean it looks in those pictures... with a goldfish that big, i just wonder how theyve kept it so clean. Theres no way im getting it... even my 150g would be too small for that thing lol... though i could stick it in the pond with the bass and catfish lol

wow... the upper right picture makes him look like a 'gold pacu'...

speaking of which, the admins really should have made a sticky out of that "fish that shouldn't be sold as pets" thread in FW... I see the pacu ads all the time. Here's text from one from this week (the pic is only of an empty tank, so I'm not including that):

20 Gallon Tank
Whisper Power Filter (with extra filters)
(2) Whisper Power Heads
Under Gravel Filter
Hood, Light, Heater, Gravel, Stand, and Decor.
Fresh or Salt (salt requires different gravel - crushed coral- not included)
Had to move my Pacu to a bigger tank.

they should name that goldfish Cartman.

i thought i had seen it all... the above was overstocked... what would you consider this? lol... heres the text from the craigslist ad...

"To a good home: 55 gallon fish tank with Pacu and Oscar fish. Comes with heater, filters, chemicals, fish food... Wood table/stand with Fish Tank=$300, don't need stand: $250.00. You will need to pick up but I will help load. Will be moving across country and would prefer not to put fish through it. Thanks"
