Makes you wonder where your seafood comes from at that restraunt.

Aquariums should be maintained by serious people who care about their pets.

Kind of on the flipside of this, my local pharmacy has a well-maintained 200 gallon SW reef. It does have algae, but from what I read, algae is an indicator that the tank can grow corals. (Which the tank has many of). I absolutely love watching that tank. They have a blue tang, a couple yellow tangs, a mandarin of some sort, 2 ocellarus clownfish, and 2 black clownfish. There is a bunch of other stuff, but I am strictly a freshie so I couldn't ID them. I must have looked like a dork, but I went in there, I just walked in, sat down in front of the tank, and left an hour and a half later. I am almost positive, though, that this tank is maintained by a business, and not by the pharmacy itself.

At a Chinese restaurant near us there's a 40 gallon with 3 red parrot cichlids... Atleast the waters clean-looking and there's a"don't tap the tank" sign.

I wish people in my state took good care of their fish.

At the children's hospital here they have tanks everywhere from fresh to salt. The saltwater tanks that they have look good and nicely stocked. The freshwater tanks must be a different company that takes care of them. I almost took a picture a while back to post on here, because I couldn't believe my eyes. It looked to be a 55g on the one that I was going to take a pic of. It had full grown parrot Cichlids that were around 8". They could barely move because this fat catfish that was over 2 foot long took up all the room. It couldn't swim nor turn it just sat on the bottom and never moved. Me and my son sat in front of the tank off and on for 3 days so I could say something but nobody ever came around. I was disgusted so I know how and what you mean.

One of my doctors has a 220 gallon African ciclid tank that's stunning. It's professionally maintained by a shop about an hour away. Amazing tank with a wet dry filter and tons of rock. All of the fish were captive bred at the shop.

My doctor's office as a small betta bowl with the plants blocking off the air.

My teacher has a gallon Betta bowl on her desk. I talked her into getting a 3 gal. It's not the best but its what I could do.
