Thumbs down I saw this picture uploaded on Facebook...

This girl uploaded this picture of SIX goldfish in this tiny tank. When I told her she needed a bigger tank (and other people started commenting too), she got offended and took the photo down.
It made me so sad. This is a prime example of why people need to be prepared and informed before they become pet owners.

These are moment where I wish there was protection for fish, legal protection. That is probably the most horrible environment for goldfish!! I don't care how many water changes she does or when she plans to upgrade. She needs to get those fish out of her home ASAP. HOLY, why can't people look at their tank and realize THIS ISN'T COOL OR HUMANE! What kind of person looks at this tank and thinks it's ok?

*shudders* this reminds me of my coworker... i always gabbed about how happy my bettas made me and she decided she needed one, went to her dad for advice that is supposedly a "fish expert" and he said that females and males can be housed together... so she went out and bought a 3g divided tank, two males and 3 females... i told her she cant have that many in that tank and that females and males can't live together but she insisted that they were getting along great. one of the females got sucked into the filter 2 days after she got it and died... i'm afraid to ask how the others are doing and she hasn't mentioned them...

It looks like they don't even have enough room to turn around.
