I see nothing wrong with that vid. I actually think it is cool looking. Those fish are tight schooling and not even using all the tank they have.

I was actually thinking that. After the fact i thought about how these schools of fish like being in a tight school close together. This tank is not all that bad but I do think that the 1 gallon for every inch of a fish is a stupid rule.

I completely agree with Etunes on this 1" per gallon rule, whoever thought of it didnt think it through all that well

I agree, the 1" per gallon rule is dumb.

the rule of 1" per gallon came because people were stocking 5 oscars in a 10 gallon cause they are pretty. Of course there are ext ream circumstances that you can push the envelope and get away with it. Im more than 100% sure gamer didnt put all those fish in that tank to start off with it.. its almost impossible for fish to survive without the proper filtration or bioload to sustain them. Can it be done? YES Should it be done with all types of fish? NO Should someone who doesnt know what the heck they are doing attempt this? NO
