I hate seeing schooling/shoaling fish not with others of their kind, or seeing cold water and tropical fish mixed. I hate seeing huge fish in small tanks, like 5 goldfish in a 10 gallon tank. I also don't like decorations. I like to see planted tanks using rock or driftwood as "decoration".

What do you mean by "man made fish"? Like fancy goldfish?

I think that was meant like flowerhorns, blood parrots, dyed/injected fish, hybrids.

Bwahahahahaha!!
Actually, mine is just a piece of black bristle board. But it hides all the wires and stuff. It works.

I also don't like those really busy fake backgrounds either.

1. Tank low on water
2. Dirty tank, colored water (how do you even enjoy that?)
3. Big fish in small tank
4. Decorations with no theme, no layout, brightly colored (I'm ok with brightly colored as long as it's done well), and no place for the fish to hide (you know -5 gallon tank with a skull, no fishing sign, and no plants. That kind of thing). Kids tank exempt.
5.No filter (my recent betta came from someone who was told by lfs that bettas did not like filration or bubblers)
6.Schooling fish by themselves

Really though, I feel bad because I think most people really love their fish, but are just ignorant of a lot of things. And to each his own on the decor
