My schools aquarium

The biology teachers set this up. They have 8 comets, one black skirt tetra, and one Colombian tetra. Water is at 78º. Kind of ironic how the people teaching us about ecosystems have no clue how to set one up.

Just outright tell him.

Oh... You could have your friend say something, maybe? Tell him to say something like, "Dad, I really think those fish aren't going to live long, etc."

How do I even approach him on the subject. "So yeah, you have in fish that will reach ten inches and are extremely messy which require cooler temps with fish that should be I schools of 5+ in water of 78º. And your filtration probably doesn't even cycle the aquarium more than 10 times per hour so I assume that your doing a 60% waterchange an hour. So if you could stop that'd be great"

Maybe, "Hey Mr. ---, I'm a little concerned about the fish tank. I am really into fishkeeping, so I have some advice. (Say what you wanna say)."

True. I'm just pretty shy around adults. I am told that I have that look where I can't be taken seriously for who knows what reason.

Give him a paper that says "check this site out for fish keeping to better your knowledge on teaching us" and put www.aquariumadvice.com
