Strangest fish set up you know of.

The title does not give a clear idea of where I would like this thread to go. I have heard of some strange fish setups and I know I'm not alone here. Let's hear some of the strangest ways people(you or someone else) have kept fish. NOTE: please keep this thread without too much ridicule towards others, it's just for fun! I'll start off by sharing my story:
I know someone who had won a common goldfish at a county fair. And as we all (should) know, any goldfish need a very large tank with good filtration. She kept it in a 1.5 gallon tank! Later on, someone at her church was getting rid of two other goldfish, I believe they were also commons. She adopted the other two fish and now had all three in a 10 gallon.

Hmmmm.... I have seen a plecostamus in a tank alone, no live plants, no algae, and he took up the whole tank. Felt bad for the guy :/ not sure why he didn't have any fish with him. I don't think thats too odd, but thats all I can think of lol

don't laugh but I have a 75gal tank and it had koi but I wanted a head start on my SA cichlids so I took the 2-8 inch koi and put them in a 15-20 gal longer and wider than most bins about a foot. Tall!! And the only thing they had was a floating plant and a air pump

I have an all male African cichlid tank that somehow managed to get one female in it. Thankfully she's not being harassed or anything.

In my doctors office they have a 55gal. 1 huge common pleco, 1 large bala shark, three large goldish gourami's, and four lambchop rasporas. With huge plants so the only ones that could move were the lambchops.
