Fish Shaming

Recently we published a gallery of Chicken Shaming, but it turns out that fish owners also like to publicly shame their beloved pets.

    Cute but absurd. Among these specimens we can find a piranha and a male fighting betta. The latter is extremely territorial and the former needs little introduction, being particularly aggressive when not in a a school. In fact, a lot of characids behave like this, including cute little neons. Bottom line, fish are very instinctive and tend to behave “my bubbles”-like because we fancy owning single-specimens of social species or think that it is cute to force naturally solitary species to play in the community pond because of reasons. By the way, offspring/egg “eating” is usually a defensive move to protect them. About the “dumbass snail” – it seems lika a Pomacea – it is a plague and almost no aquarium species – certainly no poecilids – eat them.

    Let’s take humans as “ornamentals” and place them in solitary confinement in glass bowls –
    see how that works out!

    An upset teleost is right.Some of the owners are clearly ignorant about their fish,and are being morons.

    Most of the fish shown are aggressive species and some of them have bad owners.

    You win this round, Upset Teleost; but know this: there’s only room for one condescendinding, pedantic smart-@$$ on this site. Only one…

    Curses! I cannot even spell “condescending” correctly!

    There’s always a Teleost ichthyologist in the group. I suppose someone adding bleach into aquariums to kill algae will produce a more robust response from you?

    Al-nonymous, no worries, I bow down to you.

    “Bleach” Anonymous – absolutely! We utterly oppose white-washing of aquaria.

    I wonder if these owners are putting two males in the same bowl. Cuz that will cause trouble.
