I was just at a Pet Valu here in Pickering picking up some kitten food. They had a 10 gallon on the cashier's counter with 2 black skirt tetras, 1 zebra danio, and an ADF. I didn't say anything.

Do you guys comment when you see fish not being kept in the correct numbers together, etc?

I once saw a very, very large angel alone in a 10 gal. I commented on that. Usually I keep my mouth shut... (not on the internet, as you probably have noticed, but in person I do)

Why am I seeing ads when I'm a premium member ?

And yeah, sometimes I open my mouth at some of the egregious things I see, but mostly it does not help, so mostly I try not to.

Depends where I see it, if it's at someone's house, yeah.
If it's at a pet store, then I tell them they should know better and then I re-evaluate if I should buy anything from them since I now question their credibility.
If it's at a place of business (restaurant, bank etc) I don't bother, odds are the employees don't care.

What about the concern of backlash? How do you deal with it?
I say something by asking questions, such as

If it's a population issue I usually say "Wow, that's a lot of fish, what's your filtration at?"

If it's a compatibility issue I ask "Do they all get along?"

Kind of hint towards "Do your homework dummy" :rolleyes:

I once saw an acquaintance's tank that had Malawi cichlids and 3 or 4 comet goldfish, I had to suppress the urge to strangle him
