So just at their CURRENT sizes that's like 22" of fish. Even going by he horrible "rule" of 1 inch per gallon that is way over stocked... And following that rule generally leads to overstocking already. And with a divider in the tank... That leaves so little room for each side... My poor gsp's ended up stunted in a 30 gallon. Can't imagine how bad off his will be.

He is aware that the tank is overcrowded right?

The guy is fully aware of the overstocking. Like I mentioned, he thinks the 30 gal he's going to get is gonna make things a whole lot better . Now, about the arowana, get this, that arowana, and the hujeta he has, he got for free from "some guy from a fishery he knows". Yesterday I kinda was loling at the whole situation, guess out of shock, but today I woke up mad and serious about it , to be honest. Both the gar and the arowana are beautiful, not to mention the GSP. I wish I had space and the tanks to get them all and make them happy. I HAVE to convince him to give them up somehow.

Yeah, I noticed today about it. Sorry I'll try and edit it. I'm just having a hard time editing out of my phone lol. I'll guess I'll fix it on my home computer.
