Ain't no helping that kind of people. I admit it took a while for me to realize as well that my tank was (and to some extent is) overstocked as well, but now that I do, I feel so relieved that my fish have the space they need! I don't want them to be expendable, I want them to live long and stay happy with me. Some people just enjoy switching them out as they die now and then... |:

I agree with Nossie, I am so glad that my Lucky has 90 litres to herself and doesn't have to dodge other fish all the time...

Maybe he is a fish seller and this is a holding tank?  I see some kind of grid on the right side and if you look the air bubbles are moving over to the right top and over to the other side of the tank.
Anyway it also looks like he has some major type of filtration, water exchange going on.  He might do fresh water turn overs daily.
His fish do look healthy, but yes crowded.  But maybe this is a temporary set up. Undecided

I would also think it's a temporary setup, but just the fact that this video exists is enough proof to me that there are people who attempt keeping their fish this way on a permanent basis.

There's generally no use commenting on anything on youtube, the people there are as d*mb as they get and couldn't care much less about some fish-nuts complaining... Tongue

Sometimes I can't blame the people on youtube though.

When I first came to the blog stocking levels were 10 gallons per goldfish and a betta was fine in 1 or 2 gallons of water. Now its like 20 gallons per fish or something like that because everybody uses their own stocking levels.

What I mean by stocking levels is like not if your fish grow huge (like HUGE HUGE) and you need to upgrade (scrivens!!! (just kidding). Its just what you'd put your fish in if they grew regular sized.

Sowhat I think is that as people's fish grow bigger the stocking level change and it confuses people.

But what I do blame youtubers for is not listening to people who are trying to help like you guys. Thats the part that makes me made.

Yeah....sorry for my little/big rant about youtube.

OMG!!!!!! How st*pid are they. I have to admit I was rather tickled by the "not growing anymore at three inches" those sharks can grow huge as can clown loaches and angel fish. That is just bad and I didn't hunk their was a fish that "only lived two years". They obviously died because they were stunted not old or inbreed. This person should not be near fish!

That is sad. I almost freaked out when I thought it said goldfish instead of glofish!

I noticed the forum banned the OP.  I guess if the OP keeps posting on forums someone will give them the answer they are looking for.
