Yep, I get it too.
If I were a new fish owner and dropped my fish on the floor, the last thing I'd want to hear would be a rant about how I need a bigger tank. I mean ... Help me!

Thank you...I truly didn't want to start a tank size debate lol. At least a couple of people understood my point.

Wow. I suppose I should feel like a dumbass then.

Except, if someone drops their fish out on the floor and is keeping it in three cups of water - I'd certainly suggest a bigger tank. How's it going to heal in that amount of water? And I would not like to be criticised for acting in the interests of the fish by doing so.

This is the problem with starting controversial/confrontative threads. They get the controversy and confrontation happening.

The minimum for me is 2.5 gallon. Sometimes it is a good idea for you to tell them there tank is to small but tell it to them constructively.

I'd like to say thank you to all of you not being jerks about the whole tank size thing. I sure as heck got my share of of "You really should upgrade to a bigger tank." When asking for help or something when I first started. Here's the thing: Sometimes there's no goshdarned choice but to keep the one gallon. My mother said and I quote: "I am NOT getting ANOTHER tank when the one we have is just fine." And we kept those tanks as clean as a whistle not a silk leaf out of place the problem was the fish IN the tank. I got my boy in a three gallon/two gallonish jar that's bigger then the ones I started out with and he's doing great in it. He loves it. My Akira (RIP baby boy) hated big tanks and seemed relieved when he had to be moved back into his old 1.5 tank where he lived out the rest of his life.
