my niece's tank (I don't know what size) as her sister told me, had not change her water in the tank for 4 months and the fish are almost invisible in it as her sister said. She was so sad looking at it that she volunteered to change the water for her. Good thing the fishes are still alive...sigh!

Depressing enough seeing it...a permanent record of the situation wasn't something I wanted to keep as a memento, lol.

If my friend actually goes out and gets a suitable home for him...I'll happily post a picture of that

Being responsible...fishless cycling defines it, fish-in requires it. Choose wisely.

Yup, I tried so hard to explain it to her. Aparently her mother just keeps replacing the dead fish. Once I was excited about picking up some new fish and my friend said I sounded like her mom. I was actually pretty insulted.
