That last one is just ridiculous. Scary part is the poster is trying to "show off" his aquarium.

Yup. I don't even get how the owner doesn't think that it's overstocked...I mean it's pretty obvious.

I know right?! I clicked on the link and read everything, as well as the comments. They all seemed to cheer him on.

Woah O.O
That reminds me of the time I ate at a restaurant and they had 2 full sized cichlids in a small 5 gallon...I don't still know how they made it without fighting.

That tank looks like a 10 or 20, or 30 (cant really tell) and even that wouldn't be enough it seems. Though I read somewhere that in Asia most fish keepers overstock their tanks because in their eyes it's not overstocked as opposed other parts in the world (just a little thought).

I think it was a standard 55.

But the stock was a blood parrot, a pacu, 2 koi, 3 of the shark like species I forget the exact name, a 6-7 inch catfish that I missed a photo of, and that tiny lone tetra.

A lone tetra?! wow, I wonder how it's doing; I can't imagine one alone...

It probably didn't start out alone :-(

...so would that tetra be considered lucky to still be alive or unlucky to be alive in a bad environment? ):

Neon tetras were one of the first fishes on my stocking list until I heard how sensitive and active they are. I think they could've owned a group of neons if they had compatible fishes in the tank...but seriously? Blood parrots? 3 Sharks? I don't even know where to begin lol

That tetra looks like a serpae. If he was in the same tank as all those other fish, he is probably responsible for the scale loss on the goldfish in picture two. Scary. There was a chinese restaurant near my house with a 55 gallon tank. The first fish it had was a silver arowana. After that it was replaced with two huge geophagus ( one had cloudy eyes and the other had fin rot) and a goldfish that was probably thrown in there for who knows what reason.
