LOL, craigslist people...

I'm laughing but I'm also quite sad for the fish, and also for the guy who got taken for $400+ and misinformed..

At first I thought it was like a 2.5 gallon tank or something. I feel bad for the koi.

Seens likely the person netted them from a pond, dumped them into the small tank and post the lot on craigs to make a quick buck. There's no way the fish were raise in that tank or will even survive for any length of time is something that small.

You'd be amazed.... I bet that they were in this tank for a considerable amount of time.
