It's something so scientific but with so many variables that opinions hold a lot if weight still.
I don't think this thread should be closed though.
It's a good read. Thanks for your input everyone.
You're right and the big thing about fish is that it isn't an exact science in my experience. The best thing we can do as hobbyists is learn from others past experiences and use those to shape our own before telling others of our successes and failures.
I personally think it's the failures we don't hear enough of though, it's easy to brag to someone you kept two bettas in a 20G tank and they didn't kill each other but is just as important to put your hand up for other people and their fish when you do it and it goes poorly.
