I literally just overheard someone talking at the LFS about their 4 goldfish in a 5.5-- they bought some some shrimp and a Chinese algae eater...and were going to transfer it all over to a brand new 15g! Ack!

You aren't thinking and fill up your 15 gallon tank downstairs... And figure out you can't carry it.

If you grabbed a fish and rubbed it with your thumb to try and remove its ich.

My first day.

If you believe those tiny 1-3 gallon mini tanks are good for beginners and that all those fish on the box can go in there, with no heater! I just about murdered a friend when he put an Oscar in the one he got for Christmas last year. I talked him into at least a 10 gal for little Trogdor, and he's upgrading again as soon as he can, but I'm still mad.
