Went to get my pedicure before leaving for FL and thought I'd take a picture of their cichlid tank.

You can see how massive that one pleco is, but they have TWO. Why I don't know. He says it's 250 gal but it doesn't seem that big to me. He didn't know what any of the fish were so I told him some of the species.

When I clicked the link I was honestly expecting a lot worse. There is a Chinese restaurant in the town I work at that has, MAYBE a 90gal tank, that has a oscar and 2 or 3 HUGE koi as well as a lot of random other fish. It has been set up like that for a long time and the water is always murky. I'm really surprised the oscar doesn't have HITH , but it looks depressed as heck.

You would think if people wanted to have an aquarium in their place of business they'd do some research on it and maintain it properly because at least to me it makes the business seem more trustworthy, or gives the impression that they care about anything they do.

Yea, they used to be in a 300 gallon long tank, but they converted the 300 to saltwater so the poor cichlid ended up in the "tall" tank. Water was dirty IMO and there was stuff floating in it. He has like 4 blood parrots in there and one of them wasn't looking so hot. He also told me I should use saltwater PH buffer on my tank. Hmm

I am sure they are also testing water parameters and doing regular water changes......not. We are in a strange hobby where anyone can keep fish with little or no regulation, farm animals and domestic pets have far more protection than any tank of fish.Wouldn't be a better place if there were some guidelines that had to be followed....ah the perfect world.
