Some people...

There is a 55 gal tank in the local library here with three fake plants and -
2 yellow labs
1 undetermined African
Anyway there aren't any rocks and the fish get a level tablespoon!!! Of food per day- I've watched
But what made me angry is that one of the labs was nearly killed when the undetermined attacked it and ripped off it's tail
No meds at all- took months to heal
The poor fish

I dont see the big deal really. That is sad about the fish and they get a lityle too much to eat. At least the tank isnt overstocked!!

Heh, sounds like old school cycling. Maybe they don't want "community" fish and besides, cichlid tanks have always been most popular of freshwater habitats.

You can't put community fish in a cichlid tank, if you did they would be in worse shape than the yellow lab!

What does them being a library have to do with it? Because they are a library they are not allowed to have a non community aquarium? Sounds like maybe they could use some advice on proper methods to set-up a cichlid tank. Have you tried giving any friendly advice?

If you're in the library, there are library personnel there. I know my library doesn't just keep the doors unlocked and lights on so we can visit any time we want....... although I'd really like that.
