Hi! My friend has an overstocked tank and I need help convincing him. He has 3 fancy goldfish a koI and a pleco in a 55 gallon! I told him plecos need at least 150 gallons and koI needs more than that but he thinks since they are small they have so much room. He thinks he can add another goldfish because he heard he could have 5 in a 55 gallon and apparently plecos "don't count"! I know it's his decision but he really loves his fish and I think would do what's best for them if he knew the facts. How can I convince him? He is really attached to his koI so it might be a little hard. I can't stand to see these poor fish die when I might be able to save them!
