Old School Vs New School Aquarium Keep UP.
I think people can get carried away with "best". Sometimes there seems like there's an element of elitism, where good is not good enough. Fish keeping is a HOBBY that some take to a farther extreme than others, just like anything else. The Internet facilitates this, to a large degree, by allowing like minded people to come together and fuel each others fire. The long and the short of it is that we make things as "hard" as we want them to be. But I agree with what was said earlier - better for new fish keepers to do "too much" and dial it back over time than to do too little to start.
