Suey, I'm not advocating that there was ever such a thing as the good old days, certainly our knowledge has increased dramatically over the years and there have been great advances in the hardware too.
But you can't ignore the fact that many fish did live lives which were longer than their wild counterparts even back then. I realise that when you care about the fish you want what is best for them and that's where it gets confusing because people start offering opinion as fact.
I seen it said on here several times that a five gallon tank is no use for keeping fish. Yet if you look you'll find many Killifish breeders use such tanks for maintaining pairs/trios of Killifish quite successfully.
For the record I do agree bigger is almost always better in many ways. Easier to maintain too.
