Just kidding! Don't shoot me, guys!
jcolon is exactly right. Here, what would you prefer in this situation:
You are a complete newbie to goldfish and someone on the forum tells you the stocking rule for them (1 in a 20 gal
, 1 more for every 10 gallons after) Would you rather:
have someone quote the person who stated the rule and say, "+1, goldfish are very waste-heavy and grow much larger than at the pet store. They need to be in larger tanks that what you would think."
have someone say"+1."
Obviously you would want the first option! This is after all aquariumADVICE
and the first option gives much more advice and helps much more than a simple "+1."
