    Ok there was this fish store i've been to once, and what i noticed in one of their tanks in a dark little corner was a really really big koi fish. the tank was abouuut probably not less than 2 ft. probably 3 ?. The koi fish was in a very greenish dirty looking water and the fish was about 1.5ft to 2ft long if my measuring estimations are not wrong. It looked so so so sad in that tiny tank. And there was barely any space for it to turn.

    I would have asked about that fish but the employees there don't speak english.

    Can't stop thinking about the poor koi fish =/

    Poor little thing :( I hate petshops that think it is okay to do that....

    Reminds me of when I got my red ear slider she was in a 75g with 2 full grown Oscars and a 12in pleco...

    Try to find someone to go there with you that speaks their language.

    yes it is really sad monkeypie =/. Its so sad to see, i was just looking at it for a long time. and it had so much trouble just trying to turn to the other side.

    That is a good idea DualFishTank. The next time i'm gonna be in the area i will bring someone who can speak theirlanguage.
