The fact is, you can get upset, mad, whatever... but none of us will willingly sit back and watch someone recommend a fish that gets too big for the CURRENT TANK, nor will we pass up on informing someone that their fish are too big. I don't care if you plan to get a bigger tank. I plan to win the lottery one day. Doesn't mean it's going to happen.
Yes I agree going to get a bigger tank and have a bigger tank ( that is in your ownership and that your waiting to cycle) are 2 different things.
