It's still pretty high, though I guess that depends on what you consider success and failure to be. I theorize that the fishs life spans are shortened as a result of being kept in such a fashion. So is it a success if the fish lives a year and a half?

It's really amazing. Everywhere else in fish keeping, the goal is to keep stress to a minimum. It's no secret that stress is the catalyst for all sorts of pathogens and conditions, and yet these fish are thrust into a high stress environment. Just seems counterproductive to me, putting fish that enjoy a low stress environment in a high stress one.
