Ugh! my sister's recent facebook post
I made a comment on FB about the picture, but I know everyone there will just talk crap to me for being a downer!! My sister just came home from Puerto Rico and apparently this was a welcome home gift to her? Everyone loves it and thinks its hilarious and amazing.
I think because of this page, the first thing I think of is animal cruelty :x too small, no filter, no decor, and too many goldfish .. I feel like here people will understand..

ahh and this was her response, "Wellll. Seeing that this jug of water was larger than the tank they were stuffed in at petco. I think this worked out well for them!"

and after my next response she says "i think they will be fine for the night." so I say "hopefully it's just a night :)" anddddd of course she then says,"Yes, I'll make sure to flush them down the toilet by tomorrow to get them that 20 gallons per fish"

Yeah seriously, and it just goes to show how LITTLE the majority of people know about fish. Like no one knows or even cares. I'm just surprised she was the only one bashing my comment so far. Makes me feel awkward but hey, i'm gonna speak my mind whether you like me for it or not. These people all probably believe that I am being overly obsessive about fish when in actuality, 20-30 gallons is like bare minimum for the smaller kinds of goldfish. But they're all used to bowls.

I can understand your frustration but consider, they are probably uneducated on these matters. Taking some time to explain without getting angry helps to spread the knowledge. However, I don't know how old the audience is on the page you are referring to. If it's younger than 30, it may be a lost cause and you'd be wasting your breath.

Yea I would "simply" explain about toxic buildup and how there are *good " bacteria that eat this that live in filters etc etc...and If she still decides to keep them as is. I would take them out whenever no one was around but hey that's just me haha.
