Who wants to see one of the worst tanks ever.

NOT MINE... I saw this at a customers business and I was disgusted. He said" yah its time for a water change this weekend" He probably had 10 to 15 goldfish and 2 Koi. I believe that's a ten gallon. I wanted to say something but not at the risk of my job... anybody seen worse? I once saw a full grown Jack Dempsey in a ten gallon.

I've got you beat. I visited a friend last weekend...and the guy he was staying with had a full grown Jack Dempsey in a 15 gallon...that's not even the bad part. The guy was literally feeding it dog food. After several choice words for the owner (words not suitable for AA), I went to Petsmart and bought some actual fish food for the poor guy. I convinced my friend he needs to take the fish, so he's looking on Craigs List the last couple days for a 55 gallon. Poor fish.

What amazes me is the fish in the pic LOOK to be in good shape (we can only guess how they're really doing ) They must've been in that pea soup so long, they've built an immunity to it!

Anyone want to take wagers at the state of the filter?

my sisters friend and her siblings all have fish,the youngest has a betta in what appears to be a 1/4 gallon bowl,the middle one has 3 or 4 goldfish in a 5 gallon tank,and the oldest(my sisters friend)has what looks like a very stressed out yellow lab cichlid,and a common pleco,in a 5 gallon tank.none of them looked that bad(yet)because the fish had just been added(without cycling,of course)

A membership to AA should be required for all fish purchases. All the horrible things you see and hear are gonna wind up putting me in the other version of AA, lol.
