Evidently so, I was saying that the minimum tank size recommended for any fish on this site was less that that recommended by the US site. I also said that there are obvious changes that need to be made of fish to care for their welfare.
Coincidently I have been doing a bit of digging around in the science and the value of 3.7cm/L quotes by the US site was the density found by Kleszczyńska (2004)that goldfish display complete growth and show no deformities. well close it was 3.6/L in the paper. so the US site probably based its recommendations on that.
